Introducing Visual Culture (AHV1001)

30 credits

This module introduces you to Visual Culture as an area of study, the visual artefacts it analyses and the approaches it uses to make sense of the ways in which, throughout history, human societies have used visual means to articulate their concerns. Visual Culture is a field of study that is still in formation and the module provides a critical and interpretive overview of that field in terms of its achievement and future possibilities; it explores some of the debates and questions that Visual Culture is grappling with; and it outlines the emerging strategies, theories, directions, and paths Visual Culture is exploring.
