Welcome! A few years ago, I discovered an application that artists employ in their works to bring cultural awareness to their audiences. Having discerned this semiotic theory that applies to literature, music, art, film, and the media, I have devoted the blog, "Theory of Iconic Realism" to explore this theory. The link to the publisher of my book is below. If you or your university would like a copy of this book for your library or if you would like to review it for a scholarly journal, please contact the Edwin Mellen Press at the link listed below. Looking forward to hearing from you!

Thank you for visiting. I hope you will find the information insightful. ~ Dr. Jeanne Iris

The Daily Show and Iconic Realism

Yes, The Daily Show with Jon Stewart is another example of iconic realism. As he juxtaposes the very serious business of news reporting with humor, Mr. Stewart elucidates his audience of the sobering message that society needs to pay attention to the variation of truth, broadcast on the major networks. The subject matter discussed on The Daily Show over the past few years and the increasing numbers of viewers illustrate the paradigm of news media and audience reception of current events.


  1. Hello TFE! How you be? Have a cup o Guinness bubble tea on me! It's a special brew for brave knights.

    Well, I'm a bit under the weather today, been sneezing (aahhh-choooo!), watery eyes, cough, chills/fever....the works!

    The music is a-comin' rest assured! Give me another day or 2. Just sip on that tea, while you wait. :-)

    Thanks for asking!
