How Deep and Dark: Slavery, Photography, and the Limits of Narrative
Black Faculty and Staff Association Spotlight Lecture Series
Abstract: Formerly enslaved writers and their White Northern interlocutors embraced photography—the nineteenth-century’s most revolutionary visual technology—to construct new, visually-mediated narrative forms. The lecture will reveal how photographic technologies like the daguerreotype, the carte de visite, and the stereoview transformed how narratives of U.S. slavery were written, read, circulated, and reproduced.
