Impounded Masculinity: Dorothea Lange’s Suppressed Photographs of the Japanese American Internment in World War II

Thursday, January 17, 2008
4:00 PM MultiCultural Center Theater

Linda Gordon, Professor of History at New York University

As the U.S. government interned Japanese Americans, the documentary photographer Dorothea Lange recorded the internment. Gordon, an award-winning historian of gender and race, will discuss these photographs that the army impounded and were never published. She will discuss how the camps eroded male power and the particular dispiritedness of some men in Lange’s photos, and relate these images to others that Lange observed and photographed during the depression.
