Abstract

Interdisciplinary project that explored children's use of public spaces in early 20th century Toronto from a social and a visual perspective. Funded by the Social Sciences and Humanities Research Council of Canada and conducted by a team of social work scholars and photographers/curators and visual studies researchers, the project resulted in an exhibit at the Toronto City Archives: "From Streets to Playgrounds: Representing Children in Early 20th Century Toronto" (Sept. 2016-August 2017). We approached archival photographs as both object and image (Edwards, 2009; Chambon, Johnstone & Winckler, 2011), and attended to the circumstances of their creation and their multiple uses across social fields (Sekula, 1986), examining the modifications and circulation of photographs (Cadava and Nouseilles 2013) in the creation of public discourse.
