The British, American and French Photobook:
Commitment, Memory, Materiality and the Art Market (1900-2019)
A conference to be held at the Maison Française, Oxford
Thursday 14 to Saturday 16 March 2019
The Maison Française conference committee invites proposals on the social history of the British, American or French photobook from 1900 to the present. Papers will address: commitment or explicit political engagement; memory, commemoration and the writing of history; materiality (whether real or virtual), and how material form affects circulation, handling, critical responses and the social life of the photobook.
