Description:

The emergence of New Media has stimulated
debate about the power of the visual to dethrone the cultural prominence of
textuality and print. Some scholars celebrate the proliferation of digital
images, arguing that it suggests a return to a pictorial age when knowledge
was communicated through images as well as through words. Others argue that
the inherent conflict between texts and images creates a battleground between
the feminized, seductive power of images and the masculine rationality of the
printed word. Eloquent Images suggests that these debates misunderstand
the dynamic interplay that has always existed between word and
image.Arguing that the complex relationship between text and image in
New Media does not represent a radical rupture from the past, the book
examines rhetorical and cultural uses of word and image both historically and
currently. It shows that complex, interpenetrating relationships between
verbal and visual communication systems were already evident in hieroglyphic
writing and in ancient rhetoric and persist in the work of classical
rhetoricians, in cultural studies of technology, even in the binary code
distinctions of digital environments. The essays blend theory, critique, and
design practice to explore the often contradictory relations of word and
image. All of them call for theoretically grounded approaches to hypermedia
design.Mary E. Hocks is Assistant Professor of English and Director of
