Subject: CFP: Antennae: Exposing Animals - Animals and Photography

Deadline: Sep 1, 2015


Towards the end of the nineteenth century, as technical advancements
enabled faster exposure times and better focusing abilities,
photography became the most important epistemological tool in our
relationships with animals. Made visible, immortalized, flattened, and
preserved in photographic plates, animals became essential, visual
tokens for the construction of cultural tropes like nature, culture,
wildlife, national identity, and gender. Over the past thirty years the
photographic idiom and its relationship to the representation of
animals has been to some extent brought to surface by a number of
scholars. This issue of Antennae co-curated by Giovanni Aloi, Matthew
Brower, and Cecilia Novero aims to move beyond the famous and rather
negative critique of the photographic medium formulated by John Berger
in ‘Why Look At Animals?’ for the purpose of better addressing the
multifaceted developments that have characterized the representation of
animals in photography in recent history and more specifically in
animal studies oriented critiques.
