Description This course explores how different visual media from fine art, mass media, science and everyday life intersect to form a cultural discourse, and develops ways to critically observe and engage this discourse. Different ways of seeing and interpreting visual images (from painting, advertisements, graffiti, tattoos, maps, film, social media, architecture etc.) will be developed. Visual imagery interpreted in different media and contexts will be investigated as they correlate with political and social power, globalism, gender, race, sexual identity, space, and other social questions and institutions.
