James Opp, “Re-imaging the Moral Order of Urban Space: Religion and Photography in Winnipeg, 1900-1914”

In this innovative paper, James Opp provides a fresh perspective on urban reform and the Social Gospel in Canada through an examination of the photographs used by social gospelers in Winnipeg in their efforts to create a “scientific” representation of social problems. In his analysis, the author quite literally invites us to see the period in a new way.
