Dr Carol Payne is a professor of art history and associate dean (research and international) in the Faculty of Arts and Social Sciences at Carleton University (Ottawa, Canada). A historian of photography, she is author of The Official Picture: The National Film Board of Canada’s Still Photography Division and the Image of Canada, 1941–1971 (McGill-Queen’s University Press, 2013) and co-editor (with Andrea Kunard) of The Cultural Work of Photography in Canada (McGill-Queen’s University Press, 2011) among other publications. Her more recent research explores the entangled histories of Inuit and southern Canadian settlers seen through photographs and other visualizing technologies. Collaborative research with Inuit communities around historic photographs is central to this work. Since 2005, she has been affiliated with the photo-based Inuit history research program developed by the Inuit school Nunavut Sivuniksavut and Library and Archives Canada (the Canadian federal archive). This research culminated in the publication of Atiqput: Inuit Oral History and Project Naming (Montreal: McGill-Queen’s University Press, 2022), which I coedited with Beth Greenhorn, Deborah Kigjugalik Webster, Christina Williamson, and which includes a majority of contributions by Inuit. I am currently completing a study of the 1950s photography by the hunter Joseph Idlout, which will result in a monograph as well as an online exhibition curated in collaboration with Inuk historian Augatnaaq Eccles.
