Women Picturing Revolution:Focus on Africa and the African-Diaspora

In recognition of Women's History Month, Columbia University's Institute for Research in African-American Studies (IRAAS) will host Women Picturing Revolution: Focus on Africa and the African Diaspora, a one day seminar that reclaims and retells history in a manner that is both radical and necessary. From fine art photography made as a personal response to the legacy and locales of slavery, political oppression, and the inability to act, to well-known photojournalists documenting political and social upheavals, this seminar will examine not only the photographs, but also the conditions under which women in and/or from Africa or the African Diaspora make images. In-class content will include analysis of photographic work and projects, partial film screenings, review of related literature, conversations with guest artists, and a look at how contemporary image-makers are using social media.

Participants will leave Women Picturing Revolution: Focus on Africa and the African Diaspora with a certificate showing their achievement upon completing the seminar. Participants will also leave with a reference guide equipping them with tools to better understand how women in and/or from Africa or the African Diaspora document resilience, resistance, and creative survival.

Guest artists Nona Faustine and Ayana V. Jackson will be sharing their work in person.

Nona Faustine - widely exhibited photographer and visual artist; current artist-in-residence at Smack Mellon Gallery in Brooklyn, NY.

Ayana V. Jackson - international award winning photographer, curator, and artist; 2014 Fellowship for the Arts (NYFA) Fellowship for photography recipient.

This seminar was co-created and will be taught by Lesly Deschler-Canossi and Zoraida Lopez-Diago.

The fee for this one-day seminar is $150.00.
