BeschreibungCall for Papers:
Photography and Culture

44th Annual Convention: Northeastern Modern Language Association (NeMLA)
March 21-24, 2013
Boston, MA

Social-networking sites like Instagram highlight the significant cultural roles that photographs continue to play and how our use and understanding of them is in a state of rapid flux. Despite these changes in the proliferation and presentation of images, photographs still reflect a habitual and evolving preoccupation with representation, documentation, sharing, establishing difference, and creating meaning. This panel welcomes papers from various disciplines and studies of culture and seeks to explore comparative practices with regard to photography – from its beginning to its most contemporary manifestations. This proposed session is significant in that it addresses issues that lend important insight into the past and present moment by understanding the role of photography has taken and takes in cultural practices.
