There is nothing to match this handbook in terms of the breadth and quality of its coverage of visual research methods. From quantitative to qualitative to digital methods, from photography and film to Geographical Information Systems and figurines, a very wide range of visual research methods are succinctly discussed by their leading practitioners. If you use or teach any kind of visual research method, you need this book.
This revised collection offers essential resources for researchers interested in penetrating the common cliché that the present is increasingly ‘visual’. Drawing on a wide range of interdisciplinary approaches, the book traces the full spectrum of visual experience from the process of looking at everyday objects to new considerations of the role of drawing, photography, digital and media images in contemporary visual culture. Carefully curated from contributions by leading researchers in the field, it provides an invaluable primer in established and emergent visual research methods.
The Sage Handbook of Visual Research Methods provides an indispensable overview for researchers aware of how the ‘visual’ pervades contemporary social life. The book takes into account the study of the production context of ‘visuals’, the visual artefacts/phenomena and the context of use. It offers a wide plurality of theoretical approaches and it includes research accounts of scholars working in different disciplines (sociology, anthropology, psychology…).
This timely collection offers an exciting and comprehensive overview of contemporary visual research studies, methodologies and practices. Written by leading and emerging scholars, this edition brings together an exceptional range of essays that reflect and explore significant continuities, developments and challenges within the robust, expansive, and interdisciplinary field of visual research methods. Through its structure and content, the collection invites visual dialogue across diverse and established schools of thought.
