Reihe: Interkulturelle und transkulturelle Kommunikation | Intercultural 
and Transcultural Communication 
Bd. 3

This edited volume gives voice to pluralised avenues from visual 
communication and cultural studies regarding the Global South and 
beyond, including examples from China, India, Cambodia, Brazil, Mexico 
and numerous other countries. Defining visual communication and culture 
as an umbrella term that encompasses imagery studies, the moving image 
and non-verbal visual communication, the first three chapters of the 
book describe de-Westernisation discourse as a way to strengthen emic 
research and the Global South as both a geographical concept and, even 
more so, a category of diversity and pluralism. The subsequent regional 
case study-based chapters draw on various emic theories and 
methodologies and find a complex arrangement of visuality between 
sociocultural and sociopolitical practices and institutions. This book 
targets a wide range of scholars: academics with expertise in (regional) 
visual studies as well as researchers, students and practitioners 
working on the Global South and de-Westernisation. *With contributions
