Amy Lippert on visual culture, images, and the celebrity phenomenon


Amy Lippert is a former assistant professor of urban and social history at the University of Chicago, with a particular focus on visual imagery, visual culture, and mass production. She is the author of Consuming Identities: Visual Culture in Nineteenth Century San Francisco. In this episode, we cover: the nature, importance, and history of visual images, how visual images have influenced and intersected with society and culture, and why 19th century San Francisco is a unique case study in visual imagery and culture. We also discuss why celebrities exist and how images create and narrate stories around celebrities. Just a heads-up, we had some issues while this recording this episode which impacted the audio quality towards the end.
