Visual Culture for a Global Audience (Cognella, 2016) collects and analyzes some of the most important and thought-provoking works on visual communication and culture.

Complete with an original introduction, section heads, and conclusion, this book (edited with Alina Rafikova) provides insights on visual studies for students examining practice and theory.

By addressing new technologies and dominant processes of meaning-making related to visual signs and symbols of the everyday, this textbook approaches image-making and image-reading from a critical/cultural studies approach.

The book’s aim is to challenge media creators to apply critical thinking and interpretation to their field of work and study and comes from the perspective of an editor who has hands dipped in both making media and studying it. A portion of the authors’ royalties will be donated to Free Press.
