The journal aims to promote research in a new field of historical investigation. 'Visual History' recognizes the pivotal role played by image in information age and tries to analyze its multifarious forms and polysemic potential over time, from art objects to illustrations, advertisements, photographs and pictograms. The visual approach focuses: the relationship between art and power, shedding light on the creation of consensus and on totalitarian systems; the connection between text and image, with reference to literature as well as to media products; the formation and dynamics of iconic memory, both individual and collective, which can be sounded out on an interdisciplinary basis, intertwining history and human sciences such as anthropology and psychology. The journal is meant to give critical insights into images seen as cultural constructs and as social practice, breaking down usual sectorial boundaries (and also trusting the artist's eye, privileged sensor of contemporaneity).
