Le département d’histoire de l’art et archéologie est ravi d’accueillir Jonathan Dentler, post-doctorant Terra Foundation 2020-2022, qui enseignera un séminaire en anglais sur la photographie de presse et la circulation des images au XXe siècle aux Etats-Unis. Le séminaire, ouvert aux masterant.es et doctorant.es de Paris Nanterre et Paris Diderot, est une formidable opportunité de suivre un enseignement en anglais portant sur des questions spécifiques à l’histoire de l’art américain.

 

 

 

 

 


I recently received my Ph.D. from the Department of History at the University of Southern California, where I also earned a Visual Studies Graduate Certificate. My dissertation, “Wired Images: Visual Telecommunications, News Agencies, and the Invention of the World Picture, 1917-1955,” examines wire photography services, a type of press organization that transmitted news images using radio waves and telephone wires. In it, I argue that wire photos helped publics around the world to visualize the way in which they had become connected by massive and otherwise invisible infrastructural systems.
