The Democratic Lens: Discussion Series

CENTER is pleased to announce that the National Endowment for the Humanities has awarded us the necessary funding to implement a new lecture, essay, and interview series, The Democratic Lens: Photography and Civic Engagement, in 2022-23.

Guided by a multidisciplinary Scholar Advisory Council, The Democratic Lens programs will explore historical accounts of American populations who used photography as a tool for reshaping the cultural landscape of the U.S. Through the lens of photographic history, the series will explore the democratic process, equity, and citizens’ capacity to influence a nation and will prioritize underrepresented histories to emphasize the diversity of the citizenry.

Join us in November 2022 for the Lecture Series kick-off at the Review Santa Fe Photo Symposium.
