ARTH 2245 - History of Photography

Credits: 3

[Previously offered as: ARTH 2230] A course designed to provide students with a fundamental working knowledge of the major trends in the aesthetic, conceptual, and technical aspects of photography from its beginnings in the 1830s to the recent practices of photographers and artists working with photographic technologies. Together we investigate photography’s role as an artistic medium as a central focus, as well as its broader role in our visual, political, and social culture. Textbook readings, online lectures, discussions boards, exams, and other activities assist students in gaining a critical understanding of photography.

Prerequisite(s): ENGL 109 .
Offered: Occasionally.
