Credits: 4

This course examines the transnational flows of visual media. We will survey the growing literature of visual culture in multiple academic disciplines, while considering how images travel across cultural boundaries. The course’s case studies are organized around feelings we experience in all parts of the world: fascination, fear, admiration, solidarity, grief, hope and outrage, among others. The course raises the questions of which visuals do and do not resonate with international audiences, and why certain visuals resonate more than others. This course counts toward the Journalism + Design elective or medium requirement.
