Topics in 19th- and 20th-century histories of photography; for example, photography in relation to modernism, gender, pictorial genres, or consumerism. In particular, we will focus on the history of photography in California, examining the relationship between landscape photography and conservation movements from Carleton Watkins to Ansel Adams, and Edward Muybridge's experiments with locomotion and motion pictures.
