Darcy White

Darcy White MA

Principal Lecturer in Film and Photography


Summary

I specialise in teaching the history and theory of photography and heads up the postgraduate courses in the Department of Media Arts and Communication


About

My research interests have lead to publications and conferences in areas such as widening the art and design curriculum to include 'non-western' visual culture, the relationship between design and consumption focussing on the mobile phone, public art and regional identity. This last paper considers some of the conclusions drawn from a long period of research on the public sculptures of Sheffield and South Yorkshire. It relates to work done in collaboration with Elizabeth Norman and David Ball for a book, edited by Darcy White: The Public Sculpture of Sheffield and south Yorkshire'.

In 2008 I was a panellist for the Marsh Award for Public Sculpture and Monuments.

My current research interests centre on the role of the aesthetic in contemporary photography
