The Photographic Situation: The Transnational Politics of Affect & Photography (2012-15)

Inspired by Ariella Azoulay's writing on the event of photography, this three-year SSHRC Partnership Development Grant allowed our research team, the Toronto Photography Seminar, to develop a series of international partnerships between the Durham Centre for Advanced Photography Studies (UK), the International Center for Photography (NYC), and several other U.S.-based individual scholars and communities to begin to probe the relationship between affect, emotion and feeling, and photography’s political efficacy through a series of events and publications between 2012 and 2016.
