Visual Research Methods Image, Society, and Representation


Visual Research Methods Image, Society, and Representation by Gregory C. Stanczak

Emerging from a highly successful volume of the American Behavioral Scientist, this edited volume is organized around three thematic issues: methodology, epistemological reflection, and theoretical and conceptual exploration. Each of these guiding themes is developed to greater or lesser degree in each chapter providing a navigational thread throughout the entire book. Key Features: - Includes a reader's guide that connects different chapters to different conceptual themes and methodological approaches, - Offers an expanded list of suggested readings, arranged thematically within the general framework of the book - Provides original and reprinted works by leading qualitative researchers across a wide range of fields
