Event description
The Network for Developing Photographic Research invites you to attend the fourth event in our monthly series, '1000 Words'

About this Event

The idea behind this event series is very simple: each speaker selects one photograph, uses it to write roughly 1,000 words reflecting on a key aspect of their research and presents it in the form of a ten-minute talk.

This month’s speakers focus on violent events that took place within the context of 1980s Britain, exploring the role of photography in shaping the representation and popular memory of these events.

Our first speaker, John Beales (Keele University & Imperial War Museums) will adopt John Berger’s view that a photograph is 'a message about the event it records’, exploring the internal and external narratives associated with the use of a photograph taken in the aftermath of the battle for Mount Longdon in 1982.

Our second speaker, Jessica White (University of Manchester) will use a photograph titled ‘Tribute in tears’ to explore the photographic representation of white women in cases of police violence and brutality in 1980s Britain. After the talks, there will be a short Q&A where we will welcome your thoughts and observations.
