Be it bodies of water or bodies of land, documentaries such as Al
Gore’s “An Inconvenient Truth” and Leonardo DiCaprio’s “The 11th Hour”
speak to humanity’s continued rape of the physical world. In what ways
has industrialization prompted progress while damaging the planet? What
are the consequences of violating any form of “natural boundary”? This
panel seeks critical and creative presentations that explore these
questions.

CALL FOR PAPERS
Photographic Proofs
Yale University, New Haven, CT
Friday-Saturday, April 4-5, 2008

“A photograph passes for incontrovertible proof that a given thing
happened. The picture may distort; but there is always a presumption that
something exists, or did exist, which is like what's in the picture.” â€"
Susan Sontag

“But the proof of the pictures was in the reading. The photographs had to
have their status as truth produced and institutionally sanctioned.” â€"
John Tagg
