The first Yale French Studies issue on photography, examining French photography's place in art, identity, and society through a lens of diversity and interdisciplinary investigation

In its first issue on photography, this volume of Yale French Studies presents multiple avenues of interdisciplinary investigation designed to intersect and open up new areas of inquiry in the twenty-first century. These intersections push beyond traditional geographic and gender boundaries, exploring women’s photography, new cultural contexts, trans orientalism, and minority and marginalized bodies. As they do so, they ask us to reconsider the way that we conceive of photography’s place in the past and in our lives today.

Anne E. Linton is associate professor of French at San Francisco State University. Raisa Rexer is assistant professor of French at Vanderbilt University and art review contributor to the U.K.-based magazine Apollo.
