The Democratic Lens: 2022 Lecture Series

CENTER is pleased to announce that the National Endowment for the Humanities (NEH) has awarded us the necessary funding to implement a new discussion series, The Democratic Lens: Photography and Civic Engagement, in 2022.

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 United States. 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.
