MEDIA100

Understanding Visual Culture

Our lives are dominated by still and moving images and visual technologies. This paper will constitute an important first step in learning to understand how images variously work to convey ideas, their impact and influence on our behaviour, thinking and culture. It draws on a broad theoretical platform from aesthetics, art history, psychology of perception, social semiotics and more to provide skills in analysis, interpretation, and construction.
