Picturing Others: Photography and Human Rights in Historical and Contemporary Contexts
Date: 17-18 January 2013
Time: 13:30 Registration
Location: 0.22 and 2.18, 65-68 Park Place
This Representing Migration and Mobility research network conference brings together photography practitioners, academic researchers, press officers, and members of community groups to discuss how photography is used to represent people in situations of conflict or disaster; and to consider the social and political effects of photographic representations on the lives of people migrating from one country to another.
Questions addressed at the conference include: How do photographs from past times affect the way that people are represented today? - How do different sectors use photography to inform or educate? - How do the images used and produced in different sectors communicate with each other and with their publics? - How to people from areas of disaster or conflict view images of themselves by others, and how do they use photography themselves? - What choices do photographers, broadcasters and campaigners make when using photographic images? - In what ways can human rights and individual agency be promoted and also violated through the camera?
The conference is FREE to attend and all are warmly welcome. For catering purposes, please register in advance to attend by e-mailing Europ-pgr@Cardiff.ac.uk.
