Way too *A*cademic for me. I am capable of deciphering it, but have insufficient motivation... Glancing through, it seems over-engineered. Of course modern cultures are more visual, as we have more means of transmitting images, so of course students should be offered more visual modes of transmission of knowledge - not just text/ words. There must be more here... for those ivory tower types, anyway.

Amazon.com Product Description (ISBN 0415958113, Paperback)

What does it mean to be visually literate? Does it mean different things in the arts and the sciences? In the West, in Asia, or in developing nations? If we all need to become "visually literate," what does that mean in practical terms? The essays gathered here examine a host of issues surrounding "the visual," exploring national and regional ideas of visuality and charting out new territories of visual literacy that lie far beyond art history, such as law and chemistry. With an afterword by Christopher Crouch, this groundbreaking collection brings together the work of major art and visual studies scholars and critics to explore what impact the new concept of "visual literacy" will have on the traditional field of art history.

Contributors: Matthias Bruhn, Vera Dünkel, Jonathan Crary, Christopher Crouch, Peter Dallow, James Elkins, Henrik Enquist, W.J.T. Mitchell, Richard K. Sherwin, Susan Shifrin, Jon Simons, Barbara Maria Stafford, William Washabaugh
