What follows is a sampling of recent literature on visuality and visual culture. The purpose of this bibliography is not to seek comprehensiveness, reminding colleagues, for example, of classic or standard texts. Nor do we wish to predefine issues and themes. Rather we have concentrated, for the most part, on recent works which are concerned explicitly with different aspects of visuality, or which seem to present interesting possibilities for application to the field of visual culture, crossing conventional boundaries between disciplines and intellectual areas. We wish to invite participants and readers to add to and construct their own 'working bibliography' in response to the questions raised in rethinking the visual in theory and practice from within their own concerns and disciplinary perspectives.
