This innovative book examines and introduces cutting edge visual methods in social research.


 


It explores the development of visual methodology as a field of interdisciplinary and post-disciplinary practice spanning scholarly and applied concerns. Positioned at the innovative edge of theory and practice in contemporary visual research, Pink's engaging book goes beyond the methods, ideas and fields of practice outlined in existing texts and handbooks.


 


This book examines:


-How new theoretical and methodological engagements are developing and emerging in research practice;


-the impact new approaches are having on the types of knowledge visual research produces and critiques;


-the ways visual research intersects with new media;


-and the implications for social and cultural research, scholarship and intervention.


 


This book will be essential reading for any student or researcher thinking of using visual methods in their own research.


 


Sarah Pink is Professor of Social Sciences at Loughborough University.
