Maximum Visuality: How to Look at Pictures of War
Debbie Lisle, Reader in International Relations, School of Politics, International Studies & Philosophy, Queens University Belfast, will explore three developments in our understanding of the way people read pictures of war. She will examine questions of audience, reception and interpretation; how traditions of semiotic and discursive analysis can help inform the work of creative producers examining the issues of war; and how our skills at politicizing images can help us navigate a new era of maximum visuality in which we are both watchers and watched. Support for this program provided by the UF Center for European Studies. Reception to follow.
