Reframing Family Photography
This international conference re-examines family photography, offering new ways of understanding the genre's cultural politics. A renewed investigation of family photography is critical due to
recent historical shifts altering very meaning of kinship—
including Cold War dislocations, the visibility of queer and trans family formations, transnational adoptions, and immigration
under the auspices of family reunification. The conference
includes plenary speakers Tina Campt; Nicole Fleetwood;
Richard Hill; Marianne Hirch; Martha Langford; Laura Wexler;
Deborah Willis; and an additional 40+ presenting scholars,
curators, archivists, and artists. Most events take place at the
Munk School of Global Affairs, University of Toronto.
Seats are limited. Early registration: before Feb 1, 2017.
Please note that this event will be videotaped and audiotaped.
The recordings will be made available via podcast to the
general public. By registering for this conference, you
