ART 254 - Critical Looking: Images of Power and Persuasion

2013-2014 Catalog Year

Popular imagery such as monuments, advertisements, poster, prints, photographs, electronic imagery, and other media designed to convey a strong ideological message are critically examined from circa 1850 to the present. While aesthetic elements are considered, emphasis is on how such images communicate ideas of power, class, gender, race, etc. both with and without words. Students are introduced to basic critical readings and methods of analysis and a wide spectrum of ideological viewpoints.
