Class Pictures: Representations of Race, Gender and Ability in a Century of School Photography.
Education Policy Analysis Archives, v8 n31 2000
Examined photographs taken of U.S. public school classes between the 1880s and the 1940s. Found significant gaps and historical amnesia, with segregated collections that reproduce images of hierarchy and dominance. The photographic archives searched convey biased views of the history of education and minority groups in the United States. (SLD)
