In collaboration with Dr. Thierry Gervais, Associate Professor and Head of Research at Ryerson Image Centre, Assistant Professor Jason Hill organized the symposium, “Photography: The Black Box of History” at Ryerson University in Toronto, Canada. The two-day symposium is to take place March 16-17 at the School of Image Arts at Ryerson, and will feature keynote addresses from Professor Elizabeth Edwards and Dr. Tina Campt.
The aim of the symposium is to “…investigate how photography is conceptualized as a problem in history today, and how recent technological and epistemological transformations have engendered new approaches.”
This event received support from the Office of Graduate and Professional Education, the Department of Art Conservation, and the Department of Art History.
In addition to Professor Hill’s participation in the symposium, three of our students, Dorothy Fisher, Anne Cross, and Meghan Angelos will participate in the program's closed colloquium.
