Jess Elfadl and Sara Manco, "Chasing Liberty: The Global Pursuit of the American Dream"  (Teaching & Learning)
Jess Elfadl and Sara Manco will present on National Geographic Society's Photo Camp program, which teaches photography to underserved communities around the world. These workshops empower young people living in these communities to chase after their own dreams - fulfilling their own versions of the American Dream and shattering the myth that the American Dream is unique to those living in the United States.

Evan Baden, "Terra Matter: A Collaborative Project between the Photography and Natural History Collections at Oregon State University" (Teaching & Learning)
Over the course of the 2017-2018 academic year, students in the purpose-built Advanced Photographic Publication course at Oregon State University worked with the University's vast Natural History Collections to photograph, design, and fabricate a mock-up of a book intended for publication. This collaboration was a successful example of how the arts and sciences can come together as equal partners to create something that is truly valuable both sides. Baden will share the development and structure of the course, as well as the results of project. 

Isaac Wingfield and Corey Scales, "Humanizing the Numbers: Photography in Prison" (Teaching & Learning)
Humanize the Numbers is a twelve-week collaborative workshop that combines students from a socially engaged photography course at the University of Michigan with a group of inmates from the Michigan Department of Corrections. The resulting images seek to transform public perceptions about the prison industrial complex through the personal stories of the people most directly impacted by mass incarceration.
