Jessica Labatte, Larissa Garcia: Dodging Truths and Burning Facts: Visual Literacy and Critical Thinking in Photos

Teaching & Learning

Related Members: Larissa Garcia, Jessica Labatte

This presentation will describe a collaboration between a librarian and photography professor to integrate visual and information literacy instruction into photography courses. Considering examples from photojournalism to university archives, students explore how photographic choices influence our notions of truth and authenticity to create their own photographic conspiracies and consider the systems of power at play from the early days of photography to now. Presenters will share assignments and activities that not only underscore the connection between visual and information literacy and artistic practice but also foster critical thinking skills.
