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

Carmen and Iconic Realism (Click here to view Anna Caterina Antonacci as Carmen)

My Introduction to Women Studies class has been exploring the way women have been portrayed in the arts through iconic realism.
This week, a colleague will address the iconic features of Georges Bizet's character, Carmen, as she represents the concept of love in the form of seductress, victim and other aspects of womanhood through various literary interpretations. 
Indeed, "Love is a gypsy child... She knows no law." Enjoy the Habanera!
