Subject: CONF: Photo Archives VI: The Place of Photography (Oxford,
20-21 Apr 17)

Christ Church, Oxford, April 20 - 21, 2017
Registration deadline: Apr 20, 2017

This conference investigates photographs and photographic archives in
relation to notions of place. In this context, place is used to explore
both the physical location of a photograph or archive, as well as the
place of photography as a discursive practice with regard to its value
or significance as a method of viewing and conceiving the world.
Photographs are mobile objects that can change their location over
time, transported to diverse commercial, artistic, social, academic and
scientific locations. The photograph’s physical location thus has an
impact upon its value, function and significance; these topics are
explored at the conference through a range of archives and across
disciplines. How might the mobility of photographs open up thinking
about archives and, in turn, classificatory structures in disciplines
such as Art History, Archaeology and Anthropology, or in the Sciences?
The conference also addresses questions of digital space, which renders
the image more readily accessible, but complicates issues relating to
location. What is the place, or value, of the photographic archive in
the digital age?

The conference features internationally-renowned speakers, with a
keynote lecture by Geoffrey Batchen and a final discussion led by
Elizabeth Edwards. Site visits to Oxford’s outstanding photographic
collections are also planned, including to the Bodleian Library’s
Talbot Archive, the Pitt Rivers Museum, the History of Science Museum,
the Griffith Institute’s archives of archaeological expeditions, and
the History of Art Department’s Visual Resources Centre.

The conference is convened by Geraldine Johnson (University of Oxford),
Deborah Schultz (Regent’s University London), and Costanza Caraffa
(Kunsthistorisches Institut in Florenz—Max-Planck-Institut). It is
sponsored by the Kress Foundation, Oxford’s John Fell Fund and the
History Faculty’s Sanderson Fund, and Christ Church, Oxford.  It is the
sixth in the international Photo Archives conference series.
