As part of the McGraw Center for Teaching and Learning’s Inclusive Teaching at Princeton series, the Classroom (In)Sight Juried Student Photography Competition seeks to explore campus classrooms. Whether they are traditional classrooms, laboratories, or multi-purpose spaces built to accommodate multiple ways of teaching, they are first and foremost actual physical spaces that have an impact on the interactions that take place inside of their walls. The configurations of these spaces and their histories, evident in the color of the wood, the creaking of the floors, and the changing identities of those welcomed between their walls, influence the experience of all who enter, teachers and learners alike.
Princeton students are invited to submit photographs that narrate the space of their classrooms, and that find a way to interpret the space through their particular perspective. We are looking for photographs that engage aesthetically with the space and tell a story evoking the photographer’s lived experience of the classroom. Experimentation and creative composition are welcome.
Exhibition and Award Ceremony was held on May 12, 2017, from 12:00 - 1:00 p.m. in Oakes Lounge, Whig Hall.
