> Prof. Christopher Pinney's TfC Annual Public Lecture is entitled:
> Photography and the Transformation of Culture
> Abstract:
> Was photography in India simply a  a void, waiting to be filled by   
> pre-exisiting cultural and historical practice? Or was it   
> disruptive, throwing up new opportunities, prophesying new social  
> formations, and focusing anxieties about the new visibility of  
> formerly secluded spaces and events? And what does the study of a   
> global technical practice such as photography tell us about  how we  
> might conceptualise 'culture'?
> Date: Wednesday, 17th September, 6:00 (for drinks), 6:30pm start
> Venue: UTS Building 2, Lecture Room 4.11 g.b
> Information about this event can be seen here:
