Literature, Race, Photography

interpretation;
it is itself actively interpreting, sometimes forcibly so.”

 Judith Butler, Frames of War (2009)

Welcome to the course site and blog for
American Realism in Black and White.

 This site will serve as an extension of our classroom discussions: a space to share materials, to explore ideas, to recognize and practice the active work of interpretation.

This blog contains content created by students at The University of Texas at Austin.
