EIHS Graduate Student Workshop: Envisioning Race

Friday, September 20, 2019
12:00-2:00 PM
1014 Tisch Hall Map
Images are intimate. They are reflections of historical subjects that simultaneously reveal traces of their creators and gain new meanings when archived and revisited. This workshop features graduate student research on Afro-Brazilian community magazines and racialized political scandals in Brazil, jazz photography in the Jim Crow United States, and Jewish refugees from Europe in British India. Panelists will explore how images have been used to test or challenge racial categories, empower communities, and capture or instrumentalize intimate spaces and moments. We invite the speakers and the audience to share reflections on their own methodologies and experiences of interrogating visual sources.
