Photo-Texts and the Mapping of American Lives

Panel CFP for American Literature Association, San Diego, May 21-24, 2020

From How the Other Half Lives to Humans of New York, American authors have long interwoven photos and writing to theorize and map the modern United States and the people who inhabit it. Scholars such as Sara Blair have analyzed how place-based photo-texts produce “emergent iconograph[ies] of modern experience” (How the Other Half Looks), while others, like Jeff Allred and Joseph Entin, have suggested how modernist photo-texts offer new ways of conceptualizing crossovers between realism and modernism, the political meanings and effects of documentary, and the ethics of the gaze.
