Vernacular Reframed: An Exploration of the Everyday. A two-day interdisciplinary conference, brings together the foremost historians, curators, and collectors in the field to negotiate the problem of vernacular images. Speakers will examine the social practices within which photographs have been produced and consumed through the following topics: approaches to the vernacular, a vernacular history of photography, vernacular collectors & collections, and vernacular pictures & practices. At its conclusion, Vernacular Reframed hopes to outline a new model of photographic history that can account for the diverse totality of photographic creation and use.
