Image Events: From Theory to Action (edited collection)
Eds. Joe Wilferth and Kevin DeLuca

In a world awash in images, in a culture wherein images constitute the most influential form of public discourse, constructing image events (namely staged acts of protest designed for media dissemination) has become a crucial rhetorical strategy for corporate hegemony and citizen resistance.
