Product description

Review

"The greatest strength of Practices of Looking is its thorough treatment of the conceptual and material landscape of postmodern visual culture, and this definitely distinguishes it from similar textbooks I've seen." -- Kent N. Lowery, Texas Tech University "Practices of Looking, Third Edition, is a great and valuable textbook for teaching a broad range of critical and theoretical approaches in modern and contemporary visual practices."--Whitney Huber, Columbia College Chicago "Practices of Looking's ambitions are unparalleled and it's clear that the writers are deeply engaged with the social, psychological and economic consequences of the ways in which images influence how we see ourselves and the world around us." -- Jawad Ali, Art Institute of California, Hollywood "The greatest strength of Practices of Looking, Third Edition, is its relentless drive to instill critical awareness in students. This book contributes greatly to promoting the type of visual literacy that is needed in society both now and in the foreseeable future."--William H. Lawson, California State University, East Bay "This is that rarest of textbooks--clear enough for undergraduates and challenging enough to use with graduate students. It is simply the best introduction to the most important issues in thinking about the visual from an interdisciplinary perspective."--Michael Coventry, Georgetown University
