"Ils ont souffert 102 minutes – la durée moyenne d'un film hollywoodien."
(Frédéric Beigbeder: Windows on the World)
Although reason and discourse are important in framing and communicating 'truths' about the human being, increasingly visual representation is serving to communicate attitudes, histories, beliefs, and values. This special issue on the representation of the 'other' invites your analysis of race, ethnicity, nationality, queerness, or gender as found in representations in television, ads, films, photographs, video games, computer images, etc. If these othernesses are constructed, the visual representation is one arena in which the construction takes place and is disseminated. Any theoretical bases are welcome.
