Race & Representation
Spring 2024
Taught By: Noelle Flores-Theard
Section: A

CRN: 12374

Credits: 3

“Race” is often an indirect reference to ethnic minorities, or to a spectrum of issues associated with people of color. Photographers tend to focus on the exoticism, behavior, charisma, crisis realities, cultural stereotypes, or what could now be termed, “the semiotics of race.” All these forms of depiction contribute to a complex representation of race, explored in differing aesthetics, differing conceptual or critical modes, and through varied examples of visual culture. This course will include: critical texts, a broad examination of various genres of photography, and the attentive study of how Race and culture is shown through images, cinema, narrative tableau, political perspectives, and cultural projects. Homework assignments will be given that require students to write critical papers and to produce photography or video to be further engaged in their representation of Race.

Open to: All university graduate degree students.
