What does visual sociology mean to you?
As part of its ongoing commitment to organizational strengthening and expansion, the IVSA board decided at the meeting in Montreal to begin asking members this important question and posting their responses publicly. On a regular basis we want to hear what members have to say on a number of issues, both logistical and substantive. In this case, we’re keen to understand how members view the discipline itself. What is visual sociology??? Understanding how our members understand visual sociology will help us to educate practitioners in other fields — and the general public — on the meaning of visual sociology!
At the closing night reception in Montreal last summer, IVSA board members Yolanda Hernández-Albújarand and Violetta Tsitsiliani used a voice recorder and iPhone camera to collect members’ responses to this important question. The results appear below. We would very much like for you to add your perspective to this mix.
