Symposium details:
The Walther Collection, The Center for the Study of Social Difference at Columbia University, and The Barnard Center for Research on Women present an international symposium at Columbia's Lenfest Center for the Arts, organized by Brian Wallis, Marianne Hirsch, and Tina Campt.

The symposium aims to articulate the multiple definitions of vernacular photography within a newly expanded field of critical investigation—reconsidering the context and meaning of often overlooked photographic practices and tracing their specific social histories. Bringing together speakers from a wide range of academic disciplines, presentations will consider vernacular photography in its diverse stylistic forms, utilitarian applications, and regional variants.
