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, photographer, and audience, the course introduces students across HASS to various methodologies of visual analysis through semiotics, phenomenology, neuropsychology, and psychodynamics of affect.

When Offered: Spring term, even-numbered years.



Credit Hours: 3
