Description
Work is beginning on the long-awaited edition of the second edition of “Handbook of Visual Communication: Theory, Methods, and Media.” The publisher (formerly Lawrence Erlbaum but now Routledge) was so happy with the first edition that it encouraged the book’s editors to begin work on an updated edition. The contract has been signed. The second edition will be constructed in the same way as the first edition. It will be organized around chapters addressing the major theories in the field of Visual Communication accompanied by chapters about NEW exemplar studies illustrating research used to explore that theoretical area. Theory chapters will be invited. Research chapters will be selected through blind peer-review. Research chapters to accompany the following theories are needed: · Aesthetics · Perception · Visual Rhetoric · Cognition · Semiotics · Reception Theory · Narrative · Media Aesthetics · Ethics · Visual Literacy · Cultural Studies · New Media · Ethnography · Visual Intersectionality Theory chapters have not been completed. If you’d like to see examples of theory chapters, please refer to the first edition of the handbook. A few theories have been added to the second edition, but previous work can provide sufficient information about expectations and format.

Guidelines
Length: About 5,000 words or 20 pages double-spaced with a reference list Style: APA Process: Blind peer-review Requirements: Unpublished and not under review Publisher: Routledge Visuals: Strongly encouraged with copyright permission
