Visual Communication is interdisciplinary bringing together articles from a range of subjects, including:
anthropology * communication studies * discourse studies and semiotics * media and cultural studies * sociology * disciplines dealing with history, theory and practice of visual design.
“Visual Communication offers a high quality forum of publication for articles on the crucial visual dimension of language and communication. I am sure that for scholars and students in many disciplines of the humanities and social sciences, this new journal will be an indispensable resource for learning, teaching and research.” Teun van Dijk
