The Camera and the Body

Course Number: 
141F
Through the study of historical and contemporary visual texts (from ethnography and portraiture to advertising and erotica), this course explores how photographic images of the body, while masquerading as “natural,” “self-evident,” or “scientific,” participate in highly coded sign systems that influence who looks at whom, how, when, and why.
