APSA Short Course

Mark Reinhardt (Williams) & I – Jim Johnson (Rochester) – are (once again) running a Short Course at APSA this year. We’ve done this several times now and have had good response from participants. Here are the details:

SC 3 Approaching Visual Images: Photography, Politics, and Political Science
(Wednesday, Aug 28, 2013, 1:00 PM-5:00 PM)

The domain of contemporary politics is saturated with visual images, particularly with photographic images. This short course will explore the ways politics and photography intersect from a variety of vantage points. We intend the course to be interactive and encourage participants from any sub-field. We offer this course as an initial step toward expanding the space within political science where scholars might devote sustained attention to the visual dimensions of politics. The course is an independent initiative, not sponsored by the APSA or any formal group or organization.
