From the back cover:

Image and Education: Teaching in the Face of the New Disciplinarity explores the importance of the visual image in contemporary education. Kevin D. Vinson and E. Wayne Ross draw on a range of ( post)disciplinary traditions, including the study of visual culture, cultural studies, media studies, and film studies, as well as an array of significant thinkers such as Michel Foucault, Guy Debord, Jean Baudrillard, Marshall McLuhan, Roland Barthes, Mikhail Bahktin, and Daniel Boorstin. The authors take on the surveillance-based and spectacular conditions of (post)modern schools and society and pursue not only a radical critique o fthe “disciplinary gaze,” but also the means by which teachers, students, and other interested stakeholders might resist its various conformative, anti-democratic, anti-collective, and oppressive potentialities.
