“From the Front Page to the Archive: How Photojournalism Helps Shape Civic Life” is a five-week, live, online course, offered by the Center for Creative Photography in partnership with Arizona Arts and the College of Social and Behavioral Sciences as part of the SBS’ Community Classroom program. The course meets Wednesdays from 4-6p, beginning Oct. 20.

What knowledge can be derived from photojournalism, historically and today? In what ways has the 21st century experience of globalism and connectivity destabilized or reawakened photojournalism? How does photography participate in political life and civic engagement?

These questions are situated in a constellation of subjects within photographic studies: history, journalism, politics, aesthetics and visual culture. Led by the Center for Creative Photography, this five-week online course takes its inspiration from CCP’s rich collection of photojournalism: from W. Eugene Smith to Joan Liftin, as well as recent additions of John Simmons to David Hume Kennerly to engage course participants in conversation on the documentation of civic life in America. The course also features two guest appearances from renowned photojournalists who work to visualize the American experience. Course participants will receive spectacular behind-the-scenes insights from one of North America’s leading academic art museums and research institutes for photography.
