Congratulations and a warm welcome to Jonathan Dentler, the newly appointed Terra Foundation Research and Teaching Fellow for 2020-2022. He will be teaching a seminar on press photography open to our Masters students.
‘I recently received my Ph.D. from the Department of History at the University of Southern California, where I also earned a Visual Studies Graduate Certificate. My dissertation, “Wired Images: Visual Telecommunications, News Agencies, and the Invention of the World Picture, 1917-1955,” examines wire photography services, a type of press organization that transmitted news images using radio waves and telephone wires. In it, I argue that wire photos helped publics around the world to visualize the way in which they had become connected by massive and otherwise invisible infrastructural systems. I look forward to my time in Paris, and to meeting students and colleagues at the Larca.’
