Photographs and the Practice of Histories
by Elizabeth Edwards

What is it to write history in a photographic age? This is the opening question of my new book in which I argue that the existence of photographs in the historical landscape disturbs some of the deep-seated concepts underpinning the practice of history - such as distance, scale, context or materiality. In this conversation I hope to use this argument as a springboard to explore its significance for historical practices, from museum narratives to academic writing.
