The symposium, organized by Professor Anne McCauley and sponsored by the David A. Gardner ’69 Magic Project and the Department of Art and Archaeology, focuses on the ways that photography has been used to document and explore the limits of the visible and the world of the invisible from its invention through the early twentieth century.

Speakers will include Pierre Apraxine, Carol Armstrong, Marta Braun, Clément Chéroux, Jonathan Crary, Andreas Fischer, Peter Geimer, Tom Gunning, André Gunthert, Linda Henderson, and Alexandra Owen.
The symposium coincides with the exhibition, "The Perfect Medium: Photography and the Occult", held at the Metropolitan Museum of Art in New York from September 27-December 31, 2005.
