            This workshop will explore various aspects of the
significance of photography in America- dealing with conformism,
non-conformism, and anti-conformism, related to issues of individual,
national, and cultural identities, from the mid- nineteenth century to
the present. Portraiture, urban imagery, landscape,documentary, or "art"
photography, or photojournalism, could be considered, along with
significant exhibitions and installation practices. Photographers
collaborating with writers, or writers' and critics' commentaries about
photographers could also be discussed. Different theoretical
perspectives might be utilized, such as post-colonialist or
deconstructivist approaches, or discussion of gender issues., The
workshop will create the opportunity for dialogue among scholars in
American Studies, approaching photography from a variety of
perspectives, including but not limited, to the fine arts, literature,
urban studies, cultural geography, history, and material culture
studies.
