    The history, theoretical frameworks, methodology, and pedagogy of the new field of visual culture; current debates and the possibility for future recent years, visual culture has emerged as a growing and important interdisciplinary field of study. Visual culture regards images as central to the representation of meaning in the world. It encompasses "high" art without an assumption. Archaeology, or archeology (from Greek ἀρχαιολογία, archaiologia – ἀρχαῖος, arkhaīos, "ancient"; and -λογία, -logiā, "-logy"), is the study of human activity through the recovery and analysis of material culture and environmental data which they have left behind, which includes artefacts, architecture, biofacts and cultural landscapes (the archaeological record).

    This project investigates the status of the visual archive with particular attention to the complexities of the image as object and the politics of visual culture. A first study in the project (The Book of Miko) has been an examination of over , mm colour transparencies that a museum curator discarded immediately before the closure of her collection. This comprehensive reworking of the original book, revised with sovereign assurance by Warwick Ball, one of the greatest living specialists on Afghan archaeology, with the assistance of Norman Hammond, summarises post research from Palaeolithic to Mughal times.

    Introduction. An Archaeology of Media Archaeology. Erkki Huhtamo and Jussi Parikka. The advent of "new media" (in common parlance, a loose conglomeration of phenomena such as the Internet, digital television, interactive multimedia, virtual reality, mobile communication, and video games), has challenged many scholars to investigate the media culture of late modernity. Japanese Visual Culture is an academic series devoted to the visual culture of the Japanese archipelago of every era. It includes studies on the history of painting, prints, calligraphy, sculpture, architecture and applied arts, but also extends to the performing arts, cinema, manga and anime.
