While recent American elections have been governed by identity politics and moral concerns, Barack Obama’s campaign has marked a notable shift toward an inclusive national project of change. As a result, do we read certain photographs — taken by BAGnewsNotes contributer Alan Chin in the final weeks of the ’04 campaign — in a different light than we did before?

Join us Thursday night for a special election edition of the BAGnewsSALON — an on-line discussion featuring Alan Chin, leading visual academics and photojournalist, as well as members of the BAGnewsNotes community — from 5-6:30 pm PST, 8-9:30pm EST.

(Note: We’ll be hosting the discussion on a sister-platform to BAGnewsNotes. This post will be at the top of The BAG Thursday evening with a link to the discussion site. You can also preview the pictures in advance at flickr.)
