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

Michael Jackson's "Earth Song" and Iconic Realism (Click onto title to view video.)

This song illustrates the semiotic theory of iconic realism. Here, Michael Jackson intellectually, visually and auditorily reaches into the consciousness and conscience of humanity by means of illustrating iconic features of industrialization and greed through the killing of animals, forest and human beings. He situates these features in realistic settings that are not a familiar sequence. By doing this, he illustrates the commonalities among humans around the earth and through this use of iconic realism, he brings the attention of his audience to the dilemma of stewardship of this planet, we call Earth.
