Aaron Duggan, Nova Religio The thesis presented in Images at Work, and the material selected and explicated to support it, is elegant in its simplicity. Morgan has clearly done the difficult, invisible, and underappreciated work of stripping his prose of nearly all lingo and academic shorthand. Morgan has taken the time and care to refine his argument into plain language. Because of this, the prose feels easy and unencumbered, allowing the meat and potatoes of the thesis to speak for
itself. Because Morgan has not definitively located his text within the confines of any single discipline, or embellished it with jargon specific to one field of study, the thesis he presents feels open and invitingan offer to scholars across disciplines to use his text as a point of departure from which to
reexamine and enrich their own areas of interest, whether those areas are religion, psychology, sociology, art history, anthropology, mythology, or semiotics.
Jillian Ewalt, ARLIS/NA Reviews This book will be of interest to academic libraries and scholars in visual studies, art, and art history . . . At its core, this book is really about the power of images. Morgan succeeds at demonstrating how enchantment exists as a fundamental and pervasive part of visual culture and the human experience.
