2009 (English)In: Teaching Visual Culture in Interdisciplinary Classrooms: Feminist (Re)interpretations of the Field / [ed] Dorota Golanska and Elzbieta Oleksy, Utrecht University and Stockholm University , 2009, 1, 49-57 p.Chapter in book (Other academic)
Abstract [en]

Visual literacy is important for understanding the role of visual culture as a key factor in processes of globalization, technologization and multiculturalization, which are all part of our historicity. Certainly, the study of the visual is not limited to the study of images, but also of their effects, material practices they entail and creative potential they offer. Therefore, it is of critical importance to work out new approaches to study both epistemologies and ontologies of the visual. This book weaves together various critical paradigms, theories and methodologies within the common field of feminist visual culture. By doing so, it demonstrates the importance of the analysis of the visual for feminist studies as well as the need to increase visual literacy in general. The volume provides theoretical and methodological support and examples of possible analyses for researchers and students interested in the field of feminist visual culture or, more generally, women's studies, gender studies, visual studies, art studies and science studies. It presents feminist theories and methodologies, which were influential for the field of visual culture and encourages readers to think critically about the visual.
