1. Sass, Maurice. "Magical Conceptualizations of Performative Images in the Cinquecento: “Image-justice,” “Image-medicine,” and “Image-love"" Paper presented at the annual meeting of the RSA Annual Meeting, Grand Hyatt, Washington, DC,, <Not Available>. 2019-04-20 <http://citation.allacademic.com/meta/p525190_index.html>
Publication Type: Panel Paper
Abstract: My paper will illustrate three different types of performative images of the Italian Renaissance: frescos that were used to banish the delinquent; pictures that were used to heal people from diseases via their material, iconographical, and formal characteristics; and love gifts that should evoke the love of the person desired. To achieve this aim, I will demonstrate how Renaissance scholars (e.g., Ficino, Paracelsus, Agrippa of Nettesheim, Giordano Bruno) have conceptualized these performances of images, and that the huge amount of alchemical and astrological tracts has been the base for discourses about the power of images within the “ordinary” Renaissance art theory. Furthermore, this will prove how images were thought to receive their magic power in the “era of art” no longer of the cult (legend, typology, etc.), but from hermetic knowledge that allowed the artists to instrumentalize the occult powers of nature for the production of performative images.

Abstract: It is said that “a picture is worth a thousand words,” but does this adage hold true in international relations? Scholars have posited that ‘images,’ or peoples’ mental construction of other actors in the international system, shape foreign policy preferences in ways that are difficult to explain through material factors alone. Yet our conception of how these images are constructed is fairly limited, and has thus far ignored the role of visual, as opposed to textual, forms of information. While previous studies have tested the effect of images on foreign policy preferences by presenting subjects with textual information about a state, we submit that this is inadequate to capture the reality of modern media. This blind-spot is problematic in an era where social media and television news alike subject people to a barrage of often visceral visuals, such as the pictures used to headline online articles or ‘blurbs.’ Much as people will form strong images of other nations based on a small amount of text with salient cues, we hypothesize that they will construct fairly complete mental images of other nations based on relatively limited visuals. Moreover, we expect that when visual and textual cues present conflicting information, for example about another state's cultural or moral standing relative to one’s own state, people will be more inclined to “believe their lying eyes.” We therefore propose a survey experiment designed to test this proposition. Considering the wide variety of visuals that can come from within the same state, people may form radically different images (and so adopt sharply different policy preferences) vis-à-vis the same state depending on the nature of the visuals to which they are exposed. We therefore randomly assign survey respondents both textual and visual cues of the same state in the form of a news article, cueing either neutral, opposed, or similar ‘images’ of that subject state. In doing so, we hope to show that visual media may play a significant, or even dominant role, in shaping the publics' images of other nations and, subsequently, their foreign policy positions.

Abstract: Social scientists have long argued that images play a crucial role in politics; this role is heightened by the bombardment of images that people experience today. Digitization has both increased the presence of images in daily life and made it easier for scholars to access and collect large quantities of pictures and videos. However, using images as data for social science inference is an arduous task. Political scientists have therefore often turned to other data sources and puzzles, leaving substantive theoretical questions unanswered. Fortunately, recent innovations in computer vision can reduce the costs of using images as data. The role of this paper is twofold. First, we highlight the reasons why images matter in politics and discuss multiple research agendas that would benefit from using images as data. Second, we build on existing computer vision methods to present a set of automatic techniques that will aid political scientists working with images: object detection and recognition, face detection and recognition, and visual sentiment analysis. We use political science examples to illustrate the potential of these applications for the field and provide preliminary open source software that facilitates their implementation.

A Meta-Analysis of Visual Image Effects on Persuasive Texts" Paper presented at the annual meeting of the ICA's 68th Annual Conference, Hilton Prague, Prague, Czech Republic, May 22, 2018 Online <APPLICATION/PDF>. 2019-04-20 <http://citation.allacademic.com/meta/p1368238_index.html>

Abstract: This meta-analysis examines whether adding images to texts influences persuasion. The literature search found 20 effect sizes with 2,452 participants. The overall effects show that additional visual images had a nonsignificant effect, r = .055, p = .161. However, when moderating variables were included, photographs (r = .077, p = .038), positive images (r = .185, p = .000), and health images (r = .105, p = .015) showed significant effects.
