Taught By: Margot Bouman
Section: A

CRN: 1855

Credits: 0

Visual images pervade our everyday experiences in an increasingly technological and communications based culture. From newspapers to the Web, from the sciences to the humanities, to advertisements and movies, we encounter visual images in every area of our lives. Visual Studies is an exciting new area of study that looks at this range of art, media, and visual images, rather than focusing on fine art alone. The course will familiarize students with the key terms and debates, as well as introduce techniques used to analyze visual images from art and photography, to television and electronic media, using a variety of overlapping analytic frameworks. We will draw upon new approaches in art history, media studies, gender studies, literary and social theory, and discuss their cultural, political, and aesthetic implications. Pathway: Visual Studies

Open to: University undergraduate students. Pre-requisites: first-year university writing course and at least one prior history or methods course in art, media, film, or visual culture. This course counts toward the Gender Studies minor. Co-requisite(s): PLVS 2501 Recitation
