This year’s SPE Conference is themed “The Myths of Photography and the American Dream” and will be held in Cleveland on March 7-10. Becky will be presenting her paper on Friday, March 8, in which she discusses Luke Willis Thompson’s award-winning film, Autoportrait. This film was made in response to the events surrounding the fatal shooting of Philando Castile, and the subsequent live-stream of her interaction with police, by Diamond Reynolds in Minnesota, 2016. Becky's presentation examines the film in relation to Warhol’s Screen Tests of the mid 1960’s and questions the role of the artist in mediating these events.
