PHOTOGRAPHY as PARALLEL ORAL HISTORY PRACTICE
Thu, May 3, 2012 • 6:00 PM - 7:30 PM • BUR 436A
for American Studies students:
Announcing a workshop: PHOTOGRAPHY as PARALLEL ORAL HISTORY PRACTICE on May 3 from 6-7pm in BUR 436A. Open to AMS grad students, AMS faculty, and Foodways Texas oral historians.
Marshall Wright, one of Austin's most accomplished food photographers, a Foodways Texas member, and a generally gifted food writer, thinker, and artist, will be leading a workshop for the AMS community. How do you use your camera to tell a parallel story when conducting an interview or oral history? How do you do it even when you're not a photographer? How could we use images to enrich AMS research more broadly? What might the visual add to our written and spoken texts in practice?
