Description

The anthology Visual Culture for a Global Audience takes a conceptually progressive approach to visual images and examines the role of control in visuals and images of gender, science, technology, and race. The material connects practical visual issues to critical, cultural studies. Images at the focus of this book are related to militarization, state violence, control, and masculinity in entertainment, journalism, advertising, and more. The text features imagery from around the globe, including that of regional indigenous populations. Introductions to each main section highlight key concepts that provide readers with the language and perspectives necessary for critical interpretation. These introductions also feature guiding questions that prepare students for the subsequent chapters. Editors' comments throughout the text offer additional description. Each chapter includes references and recommended readings. Visual Culture for a Global Audience is ideal for undergraduate and graduate classes related to visual communication, design, media and journalism, and courses focused on meanings of media and new technologies. The book is relevant to those interested in interpreting the meanings of advertising, politics, international relations, current events, journalism, and images.
