About the Division

Visual Communication Studies seeks to enhance the understanding of the visual in all its forms -- moving and still images and displays in television, video and film, art and design, and print and digital media. The Division sponsors research in creation, processing, function, meaning, and critical consequences of visual representation. Visual Communication Studies research touches on all other communication fields, investigating such areas as the interaction of the visual with public policy and law, mass communication processes, corporate image and organization, technology and human interaction, elite and popular culture, philosophy of communication, education and the social sphere. The Division reaches beyond content to assure visual analyses are grounded solidly in visual theory and methodology. The Visual Communication Studies Division publishes a biannual newsletter to keep members abreast of the field and its various scholarly societies.
