Beyond Images
Author : Soojin Lee
Publisher : Greenbee
Date : 2013
This is an introductory book to visual semiotics that looks into the unique characteristics and applications of visual signs based on the works of Roland Barthes and Christian Metz. One of Saussure’s core views that “thought does not create signs, instead it is the sign that guides one’s thoughts” was widely appropriated and applied into the realm of images by these two scholars. Through a series of images found in comic books, film, and animation, Beyond Images discovers meaning in the images held together by the narrative of visual media. It also delves into the gaps found in these strings of images and contemplates on what lies “beyond.”

The globalization of ‘migrants’ is being proceeded very quickly but the road for them to become citizens is still very difficult. Not only are there great barriers in obtaining ‘citizenship’ but the confusion of identity and sense of self-betrayal which people go through as a minority in another country is also great. This book extensively examines the realtiy, the lives and worries, and the strategies the migrants take and their social significance of the diasporas through the literary work they themselves have wrote to ask again the meaning of the boundary of the ‘citizen’ and reflect on our own exclusiveness.
