Visual Culture

6 ECTs / Semester / English

The seminar aims to introduce the student to the study of visual culture by focusing on the core theories that frame the field of studies whilst developing the ability to analyse visual artifacts and understand the technological details that construct them (framing, light, speed, cutting and sequencing). It further aims to provide the skills that will make the student able to contextualize and interpret the object of study and to place it comparatively within the larger body of cultural studies.
