I am one of the founders of the academic discipline of visual culture. Since 1995, I have published a dozen books which have been translated into Chinese, Spanish, Korean, Italian and other languages. These include 'An Introduction to Visual Culture' and (as editor) 'The Visual Culture Reader.' In 2013, my book 'The Right to Look: A Counterhistory of Visuality' (Duke, 2011) won the Anne Friedberg Award for Innovative Scholarship from the Society of Cinema and Media Studies. My new 'How To See The World: An Introduction to Images, from Self-Portraits to Selfies, Maps to Movies and More' is just out from Basic Books.
