  9. 9. Tim, paraphrasing Kate & Latoya: “Do all technologies drastically alter our ways of perceiving the world? Or, do we primarily attribute this quality to technologies associated with language? How might this affect how we think about technological determinism? Meaning, is it possible to make small claims about determinism —such as, technologies associated with language determine shifts in collective human perception?”Saturday, March 12, 2011
  10. 10. Hoelscher: The camera is simultaneously a technology of domination and survivance. Assigning meaning to photographs depends on understanding the contexts of creation and circulation.Saturday, March 12, 2011
  11. 11. Ben: I’m no “guns don’t kill people” fanatic because that’s absurd, but how much agency do we pin on photographic technologies in the history that Hoelscher describes, and how much do we pin on colonialization, western reason, and capitalism?  Is photography really a “‘predatory weapon’ in American colonialism” (9), as Sontag describes it, or is it just a handy tool for a variety of aims? What I’m asking is if Hoelscher thinks there is something inherent in the technology that lead to this particular use, and, if so, to what extent do you all agree?Saturday, March 12, 2011
