Tina Campt‘s Listening to Images, (Duke University Press) was originally conceived in the CSSD project she co-directed called Engendering the Archive. Throughout the book, Campt tunes in to the affective frequencies inherent in various photographs of the black diaspora. Images range from late nineteenth-century ethnographic photographs of rural African women to postwar passport photographs in Birmingham, England and 1960s mug shots of the Freedom Riders.
