Visual Culture & Gender
Vis Cult Gend
Published/Hosted by Karen Keifer-Boyd and Deborah Smith-Shank.
The purpose of the journal is to encourage and promote an understanding of how visual culture constructs gender in context with representations of race, age, sexuality, social units, and social class. The significance of visual culture for art education rests not so much in the object or image, but in the learning and teaching processes or practices used to expose culturally learned meanings and power relations that surround the creation, consumption, valuing, and dissemination of images. Similarly, the significance of gender for art education involves issues of equity and social justice in the learning, teaching, and practice of art. Published annually.
