May 10, 2017 @ 1:00 pm - 4:30 pm

The CNSA will host a pre-conference workshop on May 10, 2017, on the History of Photography. This workshop will survey photography’s major technical developments since its invention in the early nineteenth century, and examine how photography has been used and understood by practitioners over the centuries.

Our instructor, Sharon Murray, is a PhD candidate in Art History at Concordia University specializing in photographic history and theory. She has published articles in Archivaria, Ceil Variable magazine, and the Journal of Canadian Studies, and a chapter in the book, Depicting Canada’s Children. Now based in Halifax, Sharon teaches courses on the history photography at NSCAD University. She recently completed a contract with the Halifax Municipal Archives where she scanned and created descriptive records for thousands of the archive’s photographs.
