The Developing Room’s Fourth Annual Graduate Student Colloquium on the History and Theory of Photography (Virtual Event on Zoom)
Friday, April 2, 2021, online via Zoom
Rutgers, The State University of New Jersey (New Brunswick, NJ)
The Developing Room, a working group at the Center for Cultural Analysis (Rutgers University), announces its fourth annual graduate student colloquium, which will be held virtually through Zoom. This event is for Ph.D. students from any field of study who are working on dissertation topics in which photography—its histories and theories—plays a central role. Students selected to present will have the opportunity to share their work with their peers and an official respondent who is a leader in the field. Students may be at any stage of dissertation research, but ideally presentations will consist of a dissertation chapter or a section, along with an account of how that chapter/section fits within the larger project. The format involves a formal 25-minute presentation followed by 30 minutes of discussion, with a general discussion at the end led by the respondent. The event is free and open to the public, and the Developing Room invites a large audience in order to ensure a rich conversation and to build a constituency from which papers can be drawn in subsequent years. In the past, this event brought together an international group of researchers working across a wide range of topics related to photography.
