Advances in Visual Methodology examines and introduces the cutting edge in using visual methods in social research. In this exciting book, Sarah Pink draws together in a single volume a set of key writings on advances and explorations that sit at the innovative edge of theory and practice in contemporary visual research. Pink and her contributors present a critical engagement with interdisciplinary practice in the field of visual research and representation, examining the development of visual methodology as a field of interdisciplinary and post-disciplinary practice that spans scholarly and applied concerns. This focus goes beyond the methods, ideas and fields of practice that are outlined in existing texts and handbooks. Acknowledging this, Advances in Visual Methodology explores how visual methodology as a field in its own right is moving on. This book examines: / How new practice-based, 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 intersect with new media; / and the implications of this 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.
