Teaching Photography: An Interdisciplinary Theme for Science, Technology, and Art.
This paper addresses contemporary concerns with the disintegration of meaning and fragmentation of knowledge. It appeals to interdisciplinary curricula, where an effort is made to reveal the interactive relationships among different fields of knowledge. The paper proposes Photography as an interdisciplinary theme, which involves Chemistry, Physics, Technology, and Art and gives an outline of the relations and the patterns that connect these fields. Teaching Photography can provide links across disciplines and in addition it would provide a context for experimental work and problem solving. In a photography experiment, STES (Science, Technology, Environment, and Society) oriented curricula could find the basis for developing a dynamic interplay between Science Technology and Art. The proposed interdisciplinary teaching appeals mostly to higher levels of education, universities, colleges, or professional schools. (Contains 14 references.) (Author/YDS)
