"Photohistory Networks: Globalizing Photohistorical Narratives"

Saturday, March 09 - 10:00AM to 11:45PM
Empire Room

Because competing photographic processes were announced in Europe, photohistory seems Eurocentric. As an export to the rest of the world, the dominance of Europe, and later North America, in photohistory as the foundation of its narratives positions white photographers as pioneers of photography, teaching and producing photographers of color in other countries; hence, photography became another form of colonialism. In canonized photohistories, the presence of women and/or non-white photographers remains marginalized in relation to white male photographers. This panel explores whether global photohistory is a subsidiary phenomenon, or it is possible to rethink photohistory in a more globalized manner.
