Journalism | History of Combat Photography
J560 | 6400 | Cookman

This graduate-level history seminar will consider some nineteenth century
wars such as the American Civil War, but will concentrate primary on
twentieth century wars, big and small, including World War I, the Spanish
Civil War, World War II, the Korean conflict, the Vietnam War and others.
The course will be taught in the seminar format with discussion of
assigned readings and images. Students will do a research project and
present it as an oral report and an academic paper. By practicing the
history of photography, instead of merely reading about it, students
should develop an historical consciousness, enrich their intellectual and
aesthetic responses to photographs, and sharpen their critical thinking
and writing skills.
