As instructors, we often use images to add context and detail to our core content, but images and visual culture have become more central to our daily lives and can be used as the primary text in classroom lessons and teaching activities. This panel will present innovative research and pedagogical projects that help students learn to read, understand, and apply meaning-making strategies to understand and “read” images. Caitlin Henningsen (Frick Gallery) and Kaitlin Mondello (English) will present visual culture and “close looking” activities developed by Frick staff and used in Hunter undergraduate writing courses. Sarah Ward, Stephanie Margolin, and Mason Brown (Library) will discuss their work with the SEEK Summer Bridge students in which students look closely at and ask questions about comic panels and pages as an introduction to the research process.
