his book series develops and promotes the study of visual culture from a variety of critical and methodological perspectives. The impetus for the series derives from the increasing importance of visual signs in everyday life, and from the rapid expansion of what are termed “new media.” The broad cultural and social dynamics attendant to these developments present new challenges and opportunities across and within the academic disciplines. These have resulted in a transdisciplinary fascination with all things visual, from “high” to “low,” and from esoteric to popular. This series of books brings together approaches to visual culture—broadly conceived—that assess these dynamics critically and that break new ground in understanding their effects and implications.

The series fosters historicized critical studies that foreground contemporary visual-critical methods. These include—but are not limited to—studies of the new media of electronic and digital imagery (including film, video and digital imaging of all kinds) that are transforming our modes of communication and expression. We especially encourage studies that deploy inter-disciplinary methods and approaches, especially since digital culture and the new media themselves regularly exhibit a disregard for precedents in format and representational boundaries. We therefore also encourage an attention to what are termed inter-medial studies—examinations of relations between and across specific media—which afford analyses of visual culture in relation to written, aural, oral representation, etc.

The editors encourage fresh approaches toward a great expanse of visual culture topics, especially those traditionally associated with Art History and Film & Television Studies. The series foregrounds the study of both past and present visual cultures, in recognition that our new media environment provides a series of novel critical lenses by which to re-understand the history of media and visual cultures. In addition, we encourage topics addressing non-western and post-colonial cultures in their relationship to issues of visuality. In general, the contributions to the series are distinctive in sharing a defining interest in the complex interpretative interfaces emerging in relation to visual media within contemporary electronic culture.
