Product Overview

Why has the visual gone missing in sociology? Since the 1970s, visual sociology has been part of the sociological vocabulary, but until now there has been no comprehensive text that addresses this important area.

Written by one of the founding fathers of the field, Visual Sociology is the first book to provide a full and accessible introduction to the subject. Key topics covered include:

  • Visual sociology as embodied observation
  • Visual sociology as semiotics
  • Visual sociology as an approach to data: empirical, narrative, phenomenological and reflexive
  • Visual sociology as an aspect of photo documentary
  • Visual sociology and new forms of digital visualisation

The inclusion of exceptional images to enhance the engaging discussions, make this book a vital text for both undergraduate and postgraduate students taking visual sociology, research methods, visual anthropology, and other related courses.
