Fall, 2017 – I am currently on sabbatical leave, thanks to my university and colleagues, working on a project in Tanzania about female genital cutting.
November 2017 – I am very honored and excited that the Scottish Society for the History of Photography (SSHoP) has invited me to give their annual Photographer’s Lecture at the Hawthornden Lecture Theatre, Scottish National Gallery, Edinburgh on Thursday 2 November, 6-7:30pm.
I will also be conducting a masterclass with the finalists of the The Jill Todd Photographic Award. It is an annual award providing valuable support to emerging photographers, and I look forward to working with the award recipients.
August 2017 – Kirke Kook gave me a wonderful opportunity to talk about my early career and work, published on the SSHoP web site.
