Summer Conference 2016

Keynote Speakers: Shahidul Alam, Professor Liz Wells, and Michael Mack.

The theme for the 2016 APHE conference is focused around where and how photographic higher education is situated, and more broadly its reach and purpose in the 21st Century. We wish to examine and question how the study of photography fits into the overall journey of students, from school to the workplace. Such journeys do not always follow a linear chronology – the paths students take, much as they might like them to, do not always lead where they expect. The multiple entanglements emerging, from hesitant beginnings, detours, cul-de-sacs and apparent arrivals, map out individual experiences. These are then overlaid onto sometimes-rigid institutional forms and structures. In this context we acknowledge the many changes that have taken place in relation to employment opportunities in the creative sector during recent years, and ask how education can respond
