DESCRIPTION

This course provides an overview for understanding visual culture as a form of visual knowledge. Emphasis will be given to developing individual interpretive and meaning-making strategies in order to examine the forms and practices of contemporary visuality as it manifests in the cultural domain. 'Culture' as it will be used in this course includes everyday symbolic and expressive practices such as advertising, leisure activities, work, politics, artistic and creative endeavors, national, global and community activities, friendships, Internet use, shopping, etc. and their relationship to representational practices. These include the production of material artifacts through image, performance, display, space, writing, and narrative.

Activities and readings are designed to investigate the forms and practices of visual culture and their relationship to social groups, including the power relations through which these images and groups are constructed and mediated. An element of the course will be to understand and make connections between the forms and relationships of cultural production, consumption, belief systems to the meaning individuals give to social
processes and institutions through visuality. Participants will examine these elements in light of their formative, historical contexts as well as the spaces they produce and are produced in. Such contexts include socio-cultural and personal belief systems and identities.
