COMM 6700 - Rhetoric of the Photograph

Photography is the first modern visual technology that is reproducible yet still has an aura of “objectivity,” and its study addresses issues that are central to all forms of contemporary image-making, from art and architecture to politics, social media, and game design. Using the rhetorical triad of producer, photograph, and audience, the course introduces stuents across HASS to various methodologies of visual analysis through semiotics, phenomenology, neuropsychology, and psychodynmics of affect.
