Following the early articulation of event studies and the recent calls for philosophical and conceptual broadening of this emerging field, it is timely to engage with, and promote, a range of methodological approaches. Visual methods not only enable a richer and deeper understanding of events phenomena, the visuals collected or created as a part of a research project can facilitate the dissemination of findings to wider audiences. Whereas the overall aim of the special issue is to provide an overview of visual methods and inspire thinking in this area, this introductory article focuses mainly on wider conceptual and theoretical matters. It offers critical concepts and probing questions aimed at stimulating visual inquiry, along with a framework designed to capture the complexity and scope of visual inquiry in events.
