James Elkins provides an afterthought to the contributions in this volume, concentrating on five issues: the development of a research agenda, the relation between politics and aesthetics, the interconnections between images and operations, the specific role of visuality, and the awareness of conflicting perspectives on political images. He finally points towards areas and themes that might fruitfully be developed in the future.
