About Us

The Developing Room is a working group that was co-founded by Tanya Sheehan and Andres Zervigón in 2008. We are affiliated with the Center for Cultural Analysis at Rutgers, The State University of New Jersey. By organizing research seminars, symposia, and publications, the Developing Room has brought together faculty and students from the university and area institutions to explore new questions about the histories, theories, and practices of photography. To date our major research areas have included photography and medicine; photography and radical politics; global photography and its histories; and the origins of photography. We are committed to promoting Rutgers as a center for photography studies and collaborating with photography networks across the globe.

Our work is made possible by support from the Center for Cultural Analysis, School of Arts and Sciences, Office of the Vice President for Research, and Art History Department at Rutgers. 

The Developing Room is on hiatus through the academic year of 2013-2014 but will be posting new events for 2014-2015.
