Welcome to Visual Literacy Today

Visual Literacy Today is an ongoing conversation about visual literacy, a field of study and practice that explores how we see and interpret images, how we use visuals to convey meaning and what it means to be literate in a digital age.

This website is home to Dana Statton Thompson’s Recommended Reads, an extensive, annotated bibliography of visual literacy. Whether you are new to visual literacy or a seasoned expert, this reading list gives an excellent snapshot of research across the breadth of the field.

We welcome contributions from readers, academics, artists and practitioners – feel free to contact us.
