Photography, Performance, Politics: Reimagining American History

This joint book talk by Professors Matthew Fox-Amato and Rebecca Scofield delves into their groundbreaking studies of the histories of slavery and marginalized rodeo communities. With presentations from Fox-Amato's "Exposing Slavery: Photography, Human Bondage, and the Birth of Modern Visual Politics in America" and Scofield's "Outriders: Rodeo at the Fringes of the American West," these two scholars illustrate that history was not simply captured in photography and performance, but was shaped by it.
