 Metroactive Books | Inese Heinzel
She stumbled across the concept she terms "visual rhetoric" as she was teaching English to undergraduate students.
Heinzel's line of inquiry into the rhetoric of images began as a way to answer the question of why her students were less interested in reading, and whether or not images--and particularly the offspring of the digital age (she cites the Internet, photo-cell phones and interactive home-video software)--were really the culprits.
Heinzel is interested in promoting the pairing of visuals and words together in a classroom setting, which she feels is more likely to increase a student's potential to truly learn something as opposed to merely memorizing it.

Some, like W.J.T.

We will begin by briefly examining how rhetoric and the visual have been articulated at several key moments in their respective histories from classical antiquity to the present.
Coursewill cover the gamut from classical antiquity to the renaissance to the twentieth century, but will emphasize contemporary efforts to theorize the relationship between rhetoric and the visual as it is constituted and experienced in late modern society.

With the exception of texts about images, or that use graphs, charts, or tables as evidence for conclusions, the contribution of the visual to the text's meaning in the print essay is not usually considered.
With graphics and other visual elements firmly established as central to hypertext design, scholars have turned increased attention to the contribution of the visual to the meaning of a text.
And if hypertext authors are to explore the potential role of the visual in academic hypertext, they need to understand these scholars' ideas as they attempt to develop academic hypertexts.
