LIFE unfolds across academic disciplines

In the weeks before Princeton transitioned to remote teaching in March due to the COVID-19 pandemic, students in a range of classes visited the special exhibition “Life Magazine and the Power of Photography” at the Princeton University Art Museum. The exhibition sheds new light on the collaborative process behind the magazine’s iconic photo-essays that captured important moments in history. During the pandemic, students engaged with the exhibition through virtual galleries, online video discussions and lectures by museum staff — all tailored to the academic focus of each course.
