If a “documentary” as a term emerged in the 1920’s, the media formation that it names is much older, rooted in the illustrated lecture which flourished in the final decades of the nineteenth century. How and when did this formation come about? And how can a media studies approach allow us to assess the numerous illustrated lectures on the Philippine-American War?
Charles Musser is a Professor of Film and Media Studies and American Studies at Yale University. His most recent book is Politicking and Emergent Media: US Presidential Elections of the 1980’s (UC Press, 2016). He is currently working on a feature documentary for John Carlos: Your Family Album, about his son’s dual Filipino and American heritage.
