CLIT2025: Visual Cultures

Fall 2023 | 6 Credits | Prof. Jean MA

This course introduces students to key issues and debates in visual culture studies. It explores how the cultures of visual consumption, surveillance, and simulacra are formed, how these visual cultures impact upon ways of seeing the world, upon feelings, desires, and thoughts. Students will learn to use critical concepts in cultural theory to assess the cultural politics of the image in visual cultures of the modern and the postmodern.
