The Research Handbook on Visual Politics focuses on key theories and methodologies for better understanding visual political communication. It also concentrates on the depictions of power within politics, taking a historical and longitudinal approach to the topic of placing visuals within a wider framework of political understanding.

The Handbook provides an introduction to the theoretical underpinning of the study of visual politics as well as an overview of the current thinking and research traditions in the field of visual politics. The impressive selection of contributors explore all types of media, including studies of the tools utilised for visual politics such as social media, art and photography, featuring the latest platforms such as TikTok and Instagram. The editors also include discussions of visual politics covering a range of nations and political systems while placing current practices in visual politics within their historical context.

Offering a rich range of studies exploring differing practices within their contexts to highlight current studies and support the development of future research, this Research Handbook is designed for researchers and students interested in the broad field of politics and the subfields of political communication, persuasion, propaganda and rhetoric.
Critical Acclaim
‘Gathering scholars from a wide array of disciplines and backgrounds, Darren Lilleker and Anastasia Veneti’s new Research Handbook in Visual Politics offers timely insights by exploring how visuality plays a central role across numerous pressing political phenomena, from social movements to war and from election campaigns to pandemic policies.’
– Roland Bleiker, author of Visual Global Politics and University of Queensland, Australia

‘How were historical monarchs artistic portrayed to legitimate power? What are the benefits and challenges in using eye-tracking technology to study recipients’ perception of political visuals? How are journalistic war images used to support political perspectives and powers? These questions, and many more, are answered in this edited volume where scholars from different fields, with different theoretical and methodological perspectives shed light on how images are used in politics. Since we all live in a visual culture, this is a must read for anyone interested in contemporary political communication.’
– Bengt Johansson, University of Gothenburg, Sweden
