Visual Cultures and Critical Theory by Patrick Fuery
Book DescriptionWe live in a world of the image. In many ways images have replaced words as the defining aspect of cultural identity, while at the same time they have become part of our global culture. The rapidly developing discipline of visual cultural studies has become the key area for examining the issues of the image. Visual Cultures and Critical Theory includes and explains issues and concepts such as psychoanalysis, cultural theory, postmodernism, Queer theory, gender studies, and narrative theory. The major theorists are all covered as the authors look at the significance of the visual in the works of Foucault, Barthes, Lacan, Derrida, Baudrillard, and Guattari. Taking up a range of themes such as spectatorship, pleasure, power, doubles, hallucination, and the frame, the book explains them within the context of these theoretical developments. Visual Cultures and Critical Theory will provide students with a clear guide for understanding ideas of critical theory through the visual.
