Language of Images by W. J. T. Mitchell

Book Description

"A remarkably rich and provocative set of essays on the virtually infinite kinds of meanings generated by images in both the verbal and visual arts. Ranging from Michelangelo to Velazquez and Delacroix, from the art of the emblem book to the history of photography and film, "The Language of Images" offers at once new ways of thinking about the inexhaustibly complex relation between verbal and iconic representation." James A. W. Heffernan, Dartmouth College"

Books By Author W. J. T. Mitchell

Occupy by W. J. T. Mitchell Occupy, Paperback (May 2013)

Features three essays that engage the extraordinary Occupy movement that has swept across the world, examining everything from self-immolations in the Middle East to the G8 crackdown in Chicago to the many protest signs still visible worldwide.

Seeing Through Race by W. J. T. Mitchell Seeing Through Race, Hardback (May 2012)

According to Mitchell, a "color-blind" post-racial world is neither achievable nor desirable. Against claims that race is an outmoded construct, he contends that race is not simply something to be seen but is a fundamental medium through which we experience human otherness. Race also makes racism visible and is thus our best weapon against it.

Cloning Terror by W. J. T. Mitchell Cloning Terror, Paperback (December 2010)

The phrase 'War on Terror' has quietly been retired from official usage, but it persists in the American psyche, and our understanding of it is hardly complete. Exploring the role of verbal and visual images in the War on Terror, the author finds a conflict whose shaky metaphoric and imaginary conception has created its own reality.
