The Visual Communication Division is concerned with inquiry into the visual from a number of perspectives, including rhetoric, media studies, intercultural communication, political communication, cultural studies, gender, and nonverbal communication. The objective of the unit is to advance theory, pedagogy, and understanding of visual meaning and form in texts and the communication process. Our programs seek to provide an arena for intersected concerns with visual aspects of communication among diverse areas of scholarship. Submissions to the unit must engage with theoretical aspects of the visual in some manner. We sponsor annual awards for published research in addition to top conference paper and top student paper awards.
