Photo-Texts

This section showcases photo-texts featuring LGBTQI historical figures through historical knowledge, canonical text analysis, visual analysis, and DH, aiming to explore how photography has contributed to the construction of psychiatric categories, sexual minority, gender, and race identities, as well as the portrayal of criminality.

It features student projects from an undergraduate class titled “Queer Photography from France in the 19th Century.” Visualizing the intersection of medical, colonial, and photographic practices alongside critical analysis illuminates the multifaceted process of visually constructing identities that originated in the 19th century.
