FAMS 230 Reading Media

Our first books are picture books, but as we age, the images disappear and we focus on reading and writing WORDS. While images surround us, we are rarely taught how to read, analyze, or acknowledge as intellectual property the non-verbal modes of communication. This course will introduce students to techniques for analyzing visual images. We will discuss how we receive and respond to images, and how those images function ethically and morally in our culture. [H, V, W]
