Photography in Colonial and Postcolonial India as an Agent of Cultural Dominance

Photography in Colonial and Postcolonial India as an Agent of Cultural Dominance

Date: April 2, 2009
Creator: Joyce, Megan & Owen, Lisa N.
Description: This paper discusses research on the use of photography in colonial India. The thesis of the paper is that British photographers, through their choice of subjects and editing of their works, created a romanticized image of India as the British wished to see it. More recent photography has focused on the reality of the lives of the Indian people. Thus photography has moved from functioning as an agent of colonial domination and political propaganda to a tool used to bring aid and compassion to those in need.

Goya's Los Caprichos: An Enlightened Bestiary [Presentation]

Goya's Los Caprichos: An Enlightened Bestiary [Presentation]

Date: April 14, 2011
Creator: Thompson, Julie & Donahue-Wallace, Kelly, 1968-
Description: This presentation discusses research on Francisco de Goya. The author argues that the iconography and allegories found within medieval bestiaries influenced certain prints depicting human, animal, and hybrid figures within Francisco de Goya's (1746-1838) series 'Los Caprichos'. However, in contrast to the medieval bestiary, which employs animal symbolism for morally didactic purposes, Goya reworks the composition of bestial allegories in order to enlighten the viewer on the immortality that is innate, universal, and destructive.
