On-line Photo Workshop Opportunity

I received an interesting email yesterday from Ashoka U (the organization that facilitates the Changemaker campus initiative, of which Rollins College recently became part of - find out more about that by clicking HERE).  Apparently they are hosting a photography workshop in partnership with PhotoWings - Advancing Changemaking Skills Through Photography.  Looks to be a nice introduction to the basic concepts I introduce in my courses, The Photograph as Language and Memory and the Photograph - I especially like the fact that they emphasize the reading of the image over the technical creation.  Their site emphasizes:

What this seminar IS and IS NOT
  • This IS a seminar on how to analyze and preserve existing photos. This seminar will draw on photographs from any source, including family photo albums, historical societies, community archives, and online personal, professional, or social archives, etc.
  • This is NOT a seminar on how to take photos or on camera techniques. Participants may certainly include original photography in projects, but this is not a requirement.
You can find out more about this seminar and sign up to participate by clicking HERE.
