Imagined Pasts: colonialism, photography and archives

The international workshop Imagined Pasts: Colonialism, Photography and Archives will take place at ICS-ULisboa in Lisbon, Portugal, between 4 and 5 November 2019.

Imagined Pasts aims to foster a space to debate photographic collections from the colonial period. It will gather scholars to discuss the production of images in the former colonies, and the movements of photographs over time and through space.

Presentations will also address the uses and spaces (memorialistic, museal, scientific, political) in which the contemporary revisiting of photographic images is taking place, along with its multiple connections with intimate, historical and political representations of colonial pasts

The 2-day workshop includes 9 panels, one of which supported by Colour of Labour (ERC AdG 695573)

The working language is English.
