Visual Methods in Social Research

Visual Methods in Social Research➜ [KINDLE] ❆ Visual Methods in Social Research By Marcus Banks ➦ – Jobs-in-kingston.co.uk There has been an explosion of interest in visual culture coming largely from work in sociology anthropology and cultural studies and while there are a number of practical and technical manuals availa in Social PDF ↠ There has been an explosion of interest in visual culture coming largely from work in sociology anthropology and cultural studies and while there are a number of practical and technical manuals available for film photographic and other visual media there is a dearth of writing that combines both the practical and the technical This book redresses this with a balanced approach that is written primarily for students in the social sciences who wish to use visual materials in the course Visual Methods ePUB ô of empirical ualitative field research It should also be of interest to experienced researchers who wish to expand their methodological approaches. Although there is a lot of useful information in this book and it's somewhat well organized it is not the book it promises to be This book opens claiming it is a book considering lots of methodological breadth even if primarily focusing on pictures and is an introduction to visual methods in social research broadly It is not that Largely this is a rigorous perspective of ethnography of imagery in a largely offline world Granted this book was published very early for online methodology and it doesn't deal very much with digitally native imagery That said the Internet did exist and I expected a little about it Instead it primarily focuses on cultural differences between India and Jains with respect to EuropeanUS expectations of imagesSecondly there were many supposedly core topics as described by the author eg the necessary difference in form and content of images but yet the author does not define these concepts or attempt to describe what they are thoroughly in practiceSo long story short reader be warned this is primarily for the classically ethnographic methodological approach and is not in fact a general introduction and it is not uite so introductory as it intends to be 2007 reviewThe title explains this book But it was for the most part boring and didn't introduce a lot of new or original ideas for me
