Conference: Feeling Photography

October 16-17, 2009, University of Toronto

“Feeling Photography” is an international,
interdisciplinary conference that will bring
together scholars working in a range of
interpretive and theoretical approaches to
interrogate the relationship between the affect,
emotion, and/or feeling and the photograph. The
conference will be held at the University of
Toronto and is sponsored by the Centre for the
Study of the United State and the Toronto Photography Seminar.

The conference features plenary addresses from
the following scholars: Lisa Cartwright (UCSD);

Marianne Hirsch (Columbia) and Leo Spitzer
(Dartmouth); Christopher Pinney (University
College, London); Shawn Michelle Smith (School of
the Art Institute of Chicago); and Diana Taylor
(NYU). We have assembled fifty-two papers from
our fall CFP into sixteen panels featuring
scholarly work from across the globe and the
disciplines. Panel topics include Children and
