New Publication coedited by PHRC Director Professor Elizabeth Edwards with Professor Sigrid Lien

IMG_3124.JPGWe are pleased to announce a new publication Uncertain Images: Museums and the Work of Photographs, edited by PHRC Director Professor Elizabeth Edwards and Professor Sigrid Lien (University of Bergen).
