German 173: Photographs from Germany

Instructor: Kalani Michell

This course will focus on new theories of photography and a range of photographic practices from Germany and Europe. Students will explore recent scholarship in photography to analyze and interpret various photographic genres, such as family photography and city photography, as well as new photographic materials that experiment with these generic conventions. This course will also pay attention to how photography materializes in other media (e.g., films, comics, magazines, architecture) to consider how this presents challenges for medium specificity. Open to undergraduate and graduate students. Taught in English.
