Thinking with Photography about Politics and Power.

Well, this morning I am off to give an informal presentation to the cultural studies folks at University of Linköping. Title? "Thinking with Photography about Politics and Power." Basically this talk is a brief for thinking harder about the pragmatics of photography and focusing less on the aesthetics of images.  Examples? Daniel Hernández-Salazar, Richard Avedon, Joel Sternfeld, and Richard Ross.  And, of course, a dose of Arendt and Foucault. Should be fun!

And a nice, thought-provoking presentation it indeed was. Thanks. Had much more hard implications for even mainstream political science than I thought, and I not just sayin' to be kind.
