IAHIS 3311 Gender in Focus: History of Women in Photo

Women photographers play a major role in defining the contemporary landscape of photography, but the history of women in photography is filled with varying modes of representation and expression. In this one semester advanced photo course, we will examine the social and cultural shifts regarding women and photography, including how the portrayal of women changes with the power to use the camera to self-express. Divided into two sections, the initial half, The First Century, will serve to inform how historical constructs help define the female photographer and images of women in The Modern Era.
