A reader for undergraduate students enrolled in second- or third-year visual culture or visual communications courses offered via communication studies and cultural studies departments in universities and colleges nation-wide. Visual Communication and Culture: Images in Action uses a unique case-study approach to encourage students to critically examine the production and interpretation of images in their personal lives and across a variety of disciplines. Including eighteen selections from existing Canadian, UK, and US works across various disciplines, as well as an additional seven articles written specifically for this text, the twenty-four articles in this collection each emphasize that images are cultural productions. In addition, this volume includes nine easy-to-understand introductions to assist students in becoming visually literate consumers of images, with an understanding of how culture influences practices of visual communication and vice versa.
