Description

Kaja Silverman, an influential thinker in art history, argues that photography is the world’s primary way of revealing itself to us. In this talk she presents her latest work on her three-volume history of photography, a reconceptualization of the defining media of our time. Silverman, a professor at the University of Pennsylvania whose books include Flesh of My Flesh and The Miracle of Analogy, gives a keynote of the Visualizing Theory Conference.
 
Presented with the Critical Theory Certificate Program. Co-sponsored by the Center for the Humanities, the Advanced Research Collaborative (ARC), the Writers' Institute, Constance Old in memory of her brother Lloyd Old, the Doctoral Students' Council, and Mise-en-Scène.
