This symposium was presented by The Family Camera Network and the Photographic Memory Workshop and Digital Humanities Lab at Yale University. It was held at multiple venues, including the renowned Beinecke Rare Book & Manuscripts Library and the Yale University Art Gallery. This event offered participants the opportunity to view treasures from special collections; to engage with cutting-edge research by emerging and senior scholars on diasporic domestic images; to examine highlights from the oeuvre of keynote speaker, Thomas Allen Harris; and to consider how advances in neural networks provide powerful new research tools that expand how we look at and analyze family photographs.
