Visual culture, as studied in this class, may include—but is not limited to—the following media: photography, painting, sculpture, fashion, advertising, virtual reality, and other electronic imaging systems.


The UTEP Library has many resources that you can use for assignments:  Books, journals and magazines, videos, archival resources, and even original art works. 


To search for books on your topic, you can use a variety of search terms.  For instance, if you are interested in photographs of sports, you could try linking those two terms:  Photography and Sports. You will find that the subject heading for that topic is “Photography of sports.”
