Christine Hult-Lewis will be giving a talk at 5:30 pm on Wednesday, October 25, in Richards 15, titled “A New Kind of Evidence: Landscape Photography in the Courtroom in the American West.”

Christine Hult-Lewis is the interim pictorial curator at the Bancroft Library, the special collections library at UC Berkeley. She holds a BA from UC Berkeley, where she majored in Humanities and nurtured her love of American art and literature, and a PhD in American Studies with an emphasis in photographic history from Boston University. Dr. Hult-Lewis has taught classes on the history of photography and photographs of the American West at Boston University and UC Berkeley. At Bancroft, she curated several exhibitions on California painting, the history of photobooks, community and identity in western photography, and the incarceration of Japanese Americans during WWII. She co-authored the award-winning study of nineteenth-century landscape photographer Carleton Watkins, Carleton Watkins: The Complete Mammoth Photographs (Getty, 2011), and her most recent publication is an essay on postwar women’s photobooks in the award-winning book What They Saw: Historic Photobooks by Women (10x10Photobooks, 2021).
