Historians, curators and photographic practitioners have begun to re-examine older forms of photography, yet many cultural studies of nineteenth-century photography have been overly reliant upon twentieth-century theoretical constructions.

This multidisciplinary conference will move away from these models, exploring issues such as early photographic ‘authorship’, traditional technological narratives, and the ideologies of photographic realism.

Keynote Speakers:

Professor Kate Flint (University of Southern California)

Professor Lindsay Smith (The Sussex Centre for the Visual, University of Sussex)

Dr. Kelley Wilder (Photographic History Research Centre, De Montfort University)

Professor Larry Schaaf (Director of the William Henry Fox Talbot Catalogue Raisonné, Bodleian Libraries, University of Oxford)
