This Handbook of Visual Communication explores the key theoretical areas in visual communication, and presents the research methods utilized in exploring how people see and how visual communication occurs. With chapters contributed by many of the best-known and respected scholars in visual communication, this volume brings together significant and influential work in the visual communication discipline. The theory chapters included here define the twelve major theories in visual communication scholarship: aesthetics, perception, representation, visual rhetoric, cognition, semiotics, reception theory, narrative, media aesthetics, ethics, visual literacy, and cultural studies. Each of these theory chapters is followed by exemplar studies in the area, demonstrating the various methods used in visual communication research as well as the research approaches applicable for specific media types. The Handbook serves as an invaluable reference for visual communication theory as well as a useful resource book of research methods in the discipline. It defines the current state of theory and research in visual communication, and serves as a foundation for future scholarship and study. As such, it is required reading for scholars, researchers, and advanced students in visual communication, and it will be influential in other disciplines in which the visual component is key, including advertising, persuasion, and media studies. The volume will also be useful to practitioners seeking to understand the visual aspects of their media and the visual processes used by their audiences.

In today's multimedia environment, visuals are essential and expected parts of storytelling. While images may not be everything, they are a fundamental part of almost everything that goes on in the mass media. However, the visual communication research field is fragmented into several sub-areas, making study difficult. This book rectifies this issue by compiling research across different areas. Looking at topics such as the effects of viewing violence on television and analyses of the depictions of minority groups in newspaper photographs, Fahmy, Bock, and Wanta note trends across studies, tie together research across disciplines, and discuss the challenges of conducting analysis of images across print, broadcast, and online media.

In dem Sammelband wird eine Reihe visueller Kommunikations- und Kulturstudien theoretisch und anhand interkultureller Fallstudien aus dem globalen Süden (darunter China, Indien, Kambodscha, Brasilien und Mexiko) sowie weiterer Länder wie beispielsweise Japan und Taiwan dargestellt. Die ersten Kapitel des Buches definieren visuelle Kommunikation und Kultur als Überbegriff und beschreiben den De-Westernisierungs-Diskurs als Weg, emische Forschung zu stärken. Der Globale Süden wird nicht nur als geografischer Begriff, sondern vielmehr als Kategorie von Diversität und Pluralismus betrachtet. In Fallstudien werden verschiedene emische Theorien und Methoden herangezogen, um die komplexe Anordnung der Visualität zwischen soziokulturellen und -politischen Praktiken und Institutionen zu beschreiben. Das Buch richtet sich an WissenschaftlerInnen mit Kenntnissen in visuellen Studien sowie an Forschende, Studierende und PraktikerInnen, die zum Globalen Süden und zu De-Westernisierung arbeiten. Mit Beiträgen von Jan Bajec, Sarah Corona Berkin, Ivana Beveridge, Birgit Breninger, Guo-Ming Chen, Uttaran Dutta, Maria Amália Vargas Façanha, Maria Faust, Hiroko Hara, Thomas Herdin, Thomas Kaltenbacher, Fan Liang, Xin Lu, C.S.H.N.Murthy, Ana Karina de Oliveira Nascimento, Simeona Petkova, Radmila Radojevic, Renata Wojtczak

This Handbook of Visual Communication explores the key theoretical areas and research methods of visual communication. With chapters contributed by many of the best-known and respected scholars in visual communication, this volume brings together significant and influential work in the discipline. The second edition of this already-classic text has been completely revised to reflect the metamorphosis of communication in the last fifteen years and the ubiquity of visual communication in our modern mediated lifestyle. Thirteen major theories of communication are defined by the top experts in their fields: perception, cognition, aesthetics, visual rhetoric, semiotics, cultural studies, ethnography, narrative, media aesthetics, digital media, intertextuality, ethics, and visual literacy. Each of these theory chapters is followed by an exemplar study or two in the area, demonstrating the various methods used in visual communication research as well as the research approaches applicable for specific media types. The Handbook serves as an invaluable reference for visual communication theory as well as a useful resource book of research methods in the discipline. It defines the current state of theory and research in visual communication and serves as a foundation for future scholarship and study. The Handbook of Visual Communication is a theoretical and methodological handbook for visual communication researchers and a compilation for much of the theoretical background necessary to understand visual communication. It is required reading for scholars, researchers, and advanced students in visual communication, and it will be influential in other disciplines such as advertising, persuasion, and media studies. The volume will also be essential to media practitioners seeking to understand the visual aspects of how audiences use media to contribute to more effective use of each specific medium.
