For good or ill, we live in a ‘Visual World,’ meaning that most lives are governed by—or at least dominated by—visual elements circulating in media and daily existence. Can visual images dictate a person’s tastes? Can visual imagery persuade individuals or groups of people to believe in certain ideas or practices? If so, what does this mean for the world in which we live? Who benefits and who gains advantage from living in such a world? Or, who misses something important, and who is privileged and how?
With these questions in mind; after reading Chapters 11 and 16 in NFG; and having discussions and writings in class, the student must write a four-to-six page paper (using at least two academic sources from the library collections and databases) in which she or he discusses the problems or promises of living in a visual world.
The student is free to write an evaluation and analysis of the world as it exists visually, OR the student is free to evaluate and analyze a single movie; one television show; or one or two advertisements (example: commercials about one product).
The student may, of course, use one or two images in his or her paper to support his or her claims, but he or she must remember that his or her writing is the important part of the paper; the image(s) should not be more than ½ of a page—total—of the paper’s content and must serve only to enhance the argument. Visual elements are ‘extra’ sources and do not ‘count’ toward the minimum of two required, academic sources.
