  • Projects related topically or methodologically to my research interests, including albums, photographically illustrated publications, photography and sculpture / sculpture as photography, and consonances between nineteenth century photography and digital technologies.
  • Photography and its representations.
  • Aspects of visual culture since the nineteenth, with particular reference to issues of gender and femininity.
  • Art and mechanical reproduction.
  • Photography, art and politics in the late twentieth century, including second-wave feminism.
