In his latest book, James Elkins offers a road map through the field of visual studies, describing its major concerns and its principal theoretical sources. Then, with the skill and insight that have marked his successful books on art and visuality, Elkins takes the reader down a side road where visual studies can become a more interesting place. Why look only at the same handful of theorists? Why exclude from one's field of vision non-Western art or the wealth of scientific images?

About the Author:

James Elkins is Professor of Art History at the School of the Art Institute of Chicago. His books Stories of Art, How to Use Your Eyes, Pictures and Tears, and What Painting Is are all published by Routledge. He lives in Chicago, IL.

Review:

'Visual Studies is surely required reading for all engaged in the teaching, learning and researching of visual culture; not only is it instructive (and constructively disruptive) on many issues, but it is also thoroughly energizing.' - Journal of Visual Culture
