Spring 2022 Course Highlight | Latin American Photography: Freaks, Geeks, and Revolutionaries

This spring, Professor Guillermina De Ferrari will be teaching AH 430/600 “Latin American Photography: Freaks, Geeks, and Revolutionaries,” TR 1:00–2:15pm, humanities breadth and L&S credit. This course meets with LACIS 440. We will explore Latin American photography from the Cuban Revolution to the present within the frameworks of cultural studies, visual culture, and theory of photography. We will study how Latin American photographers have found distinctive ways to represent affect in political and ecological disasters, how they challenge established ways of seeing and saying, and find poetry in unexpected places. We will focus on work by visionary and eccentric artists from Latin America and the Caribbean. This is an undergrad/grad course. Graduate students will have additional research requirements.
