Summer Doctoral Seminar
2011 Summer Doctoral Seminar at Wayne State University
June 12 - 15, 2011 in Detroit, Michigan
with distinguished guest scholar Dr. John Louis Lucaites

VISUAL RHETORIC AND PUBLIC CULTURE

Studies in visual rhetoric have rapidly expanded into a significant portion of rhetorical, critical, and cultural studies. The critique of visual texts - films, photographs, tattoos, bodies - has become a new focus for rhetorical analysis. This seminar will examine various forms and theories of visual rhetoric in the context of public culture, ideology, and civic participation. How does "seeing" reflect and promote rhetorical practice and systems? How do images and iconic photographs teach ways to "see" and "be seen" as citizens in our liberal-democratic public culture? How do we negotiate power through performance of display, observation, and vision?

John Louis LucaitesJohn Louis Lucaites is the Professor of Rhetoric and Public Culture in the Department of Communication and Culture and Adjunct Professor of American Studies, Cultural Studies, and the Hutton Honors College at Indiana University. His books include No Caption Needed: Iconic Photographs, Liberal Democracy and Public Culture, a study co-authored with Robert Hariman of Northwestern University, and Crafting Equality, co-authored by Celeste Michelle Condit of the University of Georgia. He has authored over forty journal articles and book chapters and, along with Robert Hariman, he hosts the blog www.nocaptionneeded.com, which has achieved an international audience with nearly 2,000 viewers each day. He has been awarded NCA's Marie Hochmuth Nichols Award, the Winans-Wichelns Award, and the Diamond Anniversary Book Award. He has also won NCA's Golden Anniversary Monograph Award three separate times. He is also the recipient of the AEJMC Tau Kappa Alpha, Frank Luther Mott Research Award for the best book on journalism and mass communication.
