9780136033455: The World is a Text: Writing, Reading and Thinking About Visual and Popular Culture (3rd Edition)

The book teaches readers the usefulness of learning to actively "read" their surroundings. The new edition features a greatly expanded section on writing, editing, and making arguments.  This cultural studies reader directly engages the process of reading and writing about the “texts” one sees in everyday life. Using the lenses of rhetoric, semiotics and cultural studies, students are encouraged to become effective academic writers while gaining deeper insights into such popular culture categories as movies, technology, race, ethnicity, television, media, relationships, public space, and more.  For anyone who enjoys provocative and engaging material, and is interested in developing an appreciation for diverse cultural literary works.
