This unit addresses the specific needs of students researching visual culture, and in particular students pursuing research in film & video, animation and photography. The unit will examine the notion of the “iconic turn” within the contemporary interdisciplinary research field as well as situate the importance of photographic and cinematographic research in the early 21st century. Theories of the image will be examined from the Renaissance up until the theories associated with 20th century Modernism and Postmodernism. Various methodological approaches to the study of visual culture will be outlined and specific case-studies examined in detail.
This examination will serve as the scholarly background that will enable students to conceive, plan and execute their own creative research project to a very high level.
Students will create and complete their own research project within their discipline area, a project that will help to prepare them for further research associated with the Masters degree.
