Visiting Artist: Daniel Campbell Blight

April 6 @ 4:30 pm MDT

Daniel C Blight

April 6, 2022 at 4:30pm in ART 158

In this lecture, Daniel C. Blight will discuss the relationship between photography and racial whiteness. Despite the history and theory of photography’s critical turn to questions of colonialism, imperialism and race, these important discourses have left the visual logic of racial whiteness largely unexamined. Drawing on research in sociology of race, critical philosophy of race and critical whiteness studies, Blight will consider the visual dimensions of the invention of racial whiteness, the notion of seeing whiteness photographically, and the differences between white racial knowledge and white racial understanding.

Made possible through the generous support of the Carmen Morton Christensen Endowment, the Department of Art & Art History, and the College of Fine Arts.
