Further information: This year sees the launch of a new research seminar on the History of Photography, to be held at the Courtauld Institute of Art, under the aegis of the Courtauld Institute of Art Research Forum. There will be one seminar per term, and each paper and formal discussion will be followed by less formal discussion over a glass of wine. It is hoped that the seminars will develop into a lively forum for discussion of the subject of the history of photography in its broadest sense. We are delighted that Professor Mark Haworth-Booth has agreed to launch the series for us.
