New Book from CMCI

CMCI’s Dr Richard Howells is delighted to announce the publication of a second, fully revised and updated edition of his Visual Culture book from Polity Press.

The first edition came out in 2003 and has been reprinted every year since. Improvements for the second edition include more theoretically advanced sections: Prominent among the new provocateurs are Kant, Baudrillard, Althusser, Deleuze, Benjamin and Foucault. There are also more and better illustrations, together with new examples and suggestions for further reading.

A Korean edition is in press, in addition to the existing Chinese translation.

Co-credit for work on the second edition goes to Howells’ former supervisee Joaquim Negreiros. Joaquim was the first person to receive his PhD from CMCI, and is now working as a postdoctoral researcher at the University of Lisbon in Portugal.

The book cover was a collaboration between Howells and another of his former students, Jon Lloyd, who is now a professional graphic designer.
