This is the third program of Still Hazy After All These Years, a series of public panels at the CUNY Graduate Center marking the 150th anniversary of the start of the Civil War. In this program, a panel of noted art historians and historians addresses the persistence of photography’s influence over the vision of the Civil War, and what remains to be learned from the medium and the war’s visual record. Among other questions, the panelists will discuss photography’s impact on Americans’ perceptions of the conflict in the past and how the meanings and uses of the visualization of the war have changed over time.
