This subject investigates and examines photography's cultural positioning, both in a contemporary and historical context through a series of lectures by contemporary photographers, artists, writers, curators, and theorists who address photography and situated media and its production. Framed through social, political, gender-based, aesthetic and historical approaches, it aims to extend the student's critical thinking and ability to engage in a focused dialogue through interaction with invited guests and tutors. Students are supported in developing a theoretical and/or aesthetic foundation for the production of their own work and an ability to critically engage in contemporary discourse, and to situate their own work accordingly.

Typical availability
