Visible materials, visualised theory and images of social research
Abstract:Reciprocal relationships between visualising and seeing undergird all empirical investigations, but they are frequently neglected. That neglect leads to distortions in how social researchers think about the visual dimensions of their data, the visual challenge of communicating their research to others, and the images and visualisations that guide their theorising. Paying more attention to these elements can enrich our understanding of culture and social life, and of social research itself.
