Abstract

Together we will examine various images of a similar type––photographs, film scenes, and clips of a satirical comedy show––and explore what we see, and how we see. What difference does context make? How do gun violence and racial and social injustice become “normalized” through visual culture? We will demonstrate how we use visual literacy strategies in our classrooms, across our disciplines and schools, to help students detect bias in, and make meaning of, images in media.
