Noontime Colloquium Series, Tina M. Campt, Ph.D., Duke University


10/26/2007 Annenberg Colloquium Series - Annenberg School for Communication Only

Location: Annenberg School for Communication, Room 500
From 12:00 PM To 1:30 PM

This talk engages the inextricable relationship between how black people “image” and how they “imagine” themselves, and the role of photography as an under-recognized form of black expressive culture. Departing from other analyses, it engages music as a lens for reading the dynamics of still photography and for explaining black folks’ attachments to photography more generally. As static as such images may appear, they in fact have a deeper rhythmic and harmonic qualities that animate them as forms of representational practice that play an important role in the cultural politics of diasporic memory, history and community formation. Focusing on an archive of photographs of the Caribbean community in Birmingham, England, and on the genre of studio portraiture in particular, this presentation brings together the sonic and the visual to offer an alternate way of knowing images and understanding the processes of gendered and racial formation they instantiate and display.
