Approaches to Analysing Visual and Material Culture- Cath Davies

This study skills session was brilliant. Its really going to help me with the “Baby Cage” essay and future analysis of images. Cath was really stressing the different between analysis and description. She suggest using a column system when picky apart an image.

Column One: Describe

Column Two: Connotations of points in column one.

Column Three: Theoretical Underpinning supported or challenged by academic studies.

Ive started using this process to analyse the Baby Cage image and its really helping me to get moving in the right direction. I will find another image to create a compare and contrast within my essay. This will allow me to create more of an argument over controversy and how controversial a subject could be.
