Undergraduate Documentary Studies Student Presentations, April 24

Students from two Duke University undergraduate courses taught at the Center for Documentary Studies—LGBTQ History and Activism and Small Town USA—will host presentations this Friday, April 24, as part of their coursework. Brief course descriptions can be found below; event details are included on the images below.

LGBTQ History and Activism with instructor Barbara Lau explores the history of LGBTQ life in the United States, encouraging students to add to that history through original documentary work in the Duke and Durham communities. Friday’s event will feature a performance of LGBTQ stories entitled, Documenting the Triangle Queersphere.



Small Town USA with instructor Susie Post-Rust explores theory and practice of documentary photography in a small-town context. Students work in collaboration with one nearby small town each semester to complete a documentary photographic study of one individual or group within that town. Friday’s presentations will feature projected images of student work documenting Hillsborough, North Carolina, accompanied by narration from the student photographers.
