ENG 705

Studies in Visual Cultures

By exploring the ways images in photography, painting and film, as well as in literary and non-literary writing, are scripted and can be read as text, this course seeks to show how visuality organizes and shapes Western culture. Topics can include how such things as the invention of perspective and the visual technologies of photography and film have influenced philosophy and literature, and how the culture industries have used the visual as a tool to influence and entertain.
