Iris Marion Young Award Lecture - "Visual Democracy"
Innovation Clinic at GSPIA, Graduate School of Public and International Affairs, & Women's Studies
"Dorothea Lange redefined what documentary photography could be in the 1930s, proving that images aimed at social justice could also be art. Using her images, Gordon argues that Lange was building a visual case for a fuller American democracy, and simultaneously raising critical questions about the failures of American democracy."
