Practices of Looking, Third Edition, bridges visual, communication, media, and cultural studies to investigate how images and the activity of looking carry meaning within and between different arenas in everyday life. The third edition has been updated to represent the contemporary visual cultural landscape and includes topics like the increasingly rapid global circulation of media, the rise of design and DIY cultures, digital media art and activism, and challenges to photojournalism and news media. Challenging yet accessible, Practices of Looking, Third Edition, is ideal for courses across a range of disciplines.

Industry Reviews

"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
