This course examines the role of the visual in theory and practice. The approach taken is both structural and historical, presenting various critical frameworks and then using them to analyze specific examples of visual culture and their time periods. The course considers the visual through multiple dimensions–aesthetics, economics, politics, sociology, etc. It also reflects on the development of visual culture studies as an interdisciplinary field. A range of visual media–painting, photography, design, digital, etc.–and their cultural environments are examined. Heavy emphasis is placed on the student’s ability to absorb visual culture theory and apply it to written assignments and other research. This course may be used for Social Science credit. This course satisfies the General Elective requirement.
