The recent academic career of "Visual Studies" has an important component, which examines the role of images (whether moving, pictorial, or verbal) in defining culture and constituting its mediality. Studies of Visual Culture represent much more than research into pictures, let alone works of art. This scholarly field employs multidisciplinary and cross-faculty approaches concerning a variety of aspects that constitute the visual world as well as its perception and creation by humans. The course concentrates on the changing role and channels of visual communication from the late Middle Ages till the present practices. There is a long-lasting scholarly attempt to define the relationship and the interactions between images and texts, artist and audience, message and reception/perception, therefore, this course intends to deal with the most thought-provoking and cutting-edge propositions dealing with visual culture.
