Details on the companion public program are forthcoming Our understanding of the histories and practices of photography is changing as more and more critical attention is being paid to photographic cultures from outside of Europe and North America, and to new forms and functions emergent in a variety of contemporary social and political contexts. Focusing in particular on the Middle East, North Africa, and Asia, this conference brings together scholars, photographers, curators, and archivists from around the world in order to undertake new explorations of photography’s past and present.
