How to think about what it means to look and see- a guide for navigating the complexities of visual culture
Alexis L. Boylan is Associate Professor in the Art and Art History Department and the Africana Studies Institute at the University of Connecticut. She is the author of Ashcan Art, Whiteness, and the Unspectacular Man.
Boylan's work is provocative: she pushes readers to step outside of
the routine passive reception to images everywhere and asks for
consideration of the impact of these thousands of images on our
psyches and our sense of our place in the world.
