Semester Long Reading - The Photograph as Contemporary Art

Over the courses of Arts 3361 we will be reading the essays from The Photograph as Contemporary Art.  I will put a post on the website for each chapter that you are required to write a 200 word minimum response to that includes the following topics in some order.  

Which essay from the assigned chapter spoke to your own experience the most?  Summarize the main points of the essay and give a personal anecdote that elaborates on why this article spoke to you the most. Which essay made you think about photography in a new way, or spoke to experiences you may not have been as familiar with?  Which photographer(s) highlighted are you the most interested in?  Again, summarize the article and explain why this essay has reshaped your ideas about photography.  

For an assigned date each semester, you will be required to present your topics to the class for a 10 minute presentation.  You may elaborate on the themes you discussed in your essay and include pictures to be shown to the class.  You must however present on essays included in the chapter that you are listed under.

Each reading response is worth 25 points, your presentation is worth 100 points, totaling a final project worth of 300 points.
