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

As the crisis in Port-au-Prince, Haiti, continues, the United States 82nd Airborne Division from Ft. Bragg, North Carolina, trained for combat, is called to duty of the most humanitarian nature. This juxtaposition of warriors with this act of human compassion, providing greatly needed food and water, illustrates iconic realism in the media, for this action brings awareness of the need for all humans, even those trained for combat, to illustrate benevolence when the need arises.
