Product Description & Reviews

Technological changes have radically altered the ways in which people use visual images. Since the invention of photography, imagery has increasingly been used for entertainment, journalism, information, medical diagnostics, instruction, branding and communication. These functions move the image beyond aesthetic issues associated with art and into the realm of communication studies. This introductory textbook introduces students to the terminology of visual literacy, methods for analyzing visual media, and theories on the relationship between visual communication and culture. Exploring the meanings associated with visual symbols and the relationship of visual communication to culture, this book provides students with a better understanding of the visually oriented world in which they live. From cave art to virtual reality, all visual media are discussed with methods for evaluation. Student-friendly features such as boxed topics, key terms, web resources, and suggestions for exercises are provided throughout.

The Doppelgänger (German Visual Culture)
By Peter Lang AG, Internationaler Verlag der Wissenschaften
ean: 9783034319614, isbn: 3034319614,
The Doppelgänger – the double, twin, mirror image or alter ego of someone else – is an ancient and universal theme that can be traced at least as far back as Greek and Roman mythology, but is particularly associated with two areas of study: psychology, and German literature and culture since the Romantic movement. Although German language literature has been a nexus for writing on the Doppelgänger, there is a paucity of scholarly work treating a broader selection of cultural products from

The Essential Enthymeme: Propositions for Educating Students in a Modern World
By Peter Lang AG, Internationaler Verlag der Wissenschaften
mpn: 70, ean: 9783034320511, isbn: 3034320515,
The enthymeme in education is essential because it reflects what humans do when they think. It informs not only how we make inferences about the world to discover new knowledge, but also how we express those discoveries to influence the minds of others. Thus, the enthymeme provides an effective pedagogical approach to the analysis and synthesis of ideas in the classroom. In this volume, such an approach is applied to composition instruction, second-language learning, advertising, specialized

Public Relations Case Studies from Around the World (2nd Edition)
By Peter Lang Inc., International Academic Publishers
ean: 9781433134548, isbn: 1433134543,
The case studies in this book, many of which have won national or international awards, represent an impressive scope of public relations practice―from public diplomacy to corporate social responsibility to crisis communications to social justice issues and special events. These chapters take a significant step toward overcoming the dearth of published case studies in public relations beyond North America. Written by established scholars and professionals who had access to some of the

Media, NASA, and America’s Quest for the Moon (Mediating American History)
By Brand: Peter Lang International Academic Publishers
ean: 9781433103001, isbn: 1433103001,
When Apollo 11 landed on the moon in July 1969, it capped not only the most remarkable engineering feat in history, but also a decade-long battle over how much access the press and public should have to the manned space program. Now, forty years after an awed world watched Neil Armstrong and Buzz Aldrin bounce across the surface of the moon, this book tells the behind-the-scenes story of how NASA and the U.S. media were often at odds, but ultimately showed extraordinary cooperation in bringing

Mapping Media Ecology: Introduction to the Field (Understanding Media Ecology)
By Peter Lang Inc., International Academic Publishers
mpn: 9781433127632, ean: 9781433127632, isbn: 1433127636,
Until now, the academic foundations of media ecology have been passed down primarily in the form of edited volumes, often by students of Neil Postman, or are limited to a focus on Marshall McLuhan and/or Postman or some other individual important to the field. Those volumes are invaluable in pointing to key ideas in the field; they provide an important and informed account of the fundamentals of media ecology as set forth at the field’s inception. Yet there is more to the story. Offering an
