History of Photography: Early

Through a review of photographic technologies and traditions prior to World War I, photography's contribution to nineteenth century visual art is examined within the context of social, cultural, political, economic, and scientific impact. Specific topics will include: the portraiture industry; medical, criminal, and ethnographic photography; war documentation; travel and exploration photography; photography as a tool for social reform; and the medium's relationship to the fine arts. Illustrated presentations, lectures, research, field trips and discussion. This course fulfills the MCC requirement for a humanities course and a social science elective. (SUNY-H)
