Durham University, UK
20-22 September 2007
Following the success of its inaugural conference ‘Thinking Photography – Again’ (July 2005), the Durham Centre for Advanced Photography Studies (www.dur.ac.uk/dcaps) is hosting a second conference in September 2007 entitled ‘Locating Photography’. . . .
‘Locating Photography’ seeks to investigate the relationship between national paradigms and the apparently universal nature of the medium. What is at stake in insisting on or resisting the national paradigm? Why has it been so persistent, and can it continue to provide an adequate framework for understanding the history of the photographic medium in a global, digital age?
