Imagined Pasts: Colonialism, Photography and Archives

Institute of Social Sciences
University of Lisbon
The international workshop Imagined Pasts: Colonialism, Photography and Archives takes place at ICS-ULisboa in Lisbon, Portugal, between 4 and 5 November 2019.
Imagined Pasts aims to foster a space to debate photographic collections from the colonial period. It gathers scholars to discuss the production of images in the former colonies, and the movements of photographs over time and through space.
Presentations address the uses and spaces (memorialistic, museal, scientific, political) in which the contemporary revisiting of photographic images is taking place, along with its multiple connections with intimate, historical and political representations of colonial pasts.
The 2-day workshop includes 9 panels, one of which supported by Colour of Labour (ERC AdG 695573).
Organizers: Maria José Lobo Antunes, Inês Ponte, Filipa Lowndes Vicente
Ana Gandum participated as a speaker.
