Reframing Visual Social Science

Author: Luc Pauwels
Publisher: Cambridge University Press
ISBN: 9781316368220
Release Date: 2015-08-27
Genre: Social Science

The burgeoning field of 'visual social science' is rooted in the idea that valid scientific insight into culture and society can be acquired by observing, analyzing and theorizing its visual manifestations: visible behavior of people and material products of culture. Reframing Visual Social Science provides a well-balanced, critical-constructive and systematic overview of existing and emerging modes of visual social and cultural research. The book includes integrated models and conceptual frameworks, analytical approaches to scrutinizing existing imagery and multimodal phenomena, a systematic presentation of more active ways and formats of visual scholarly production and communication, and a number of case studies which exemplify the broad fields of application. Finally, visual social research is situated within a wider perspective by addressing the issue of ethics; by presenting a generic approach to producing, selecting and using visual representations; and through discussing the specific challenges and opportunities of a 'more visual' social science.

Routledge International Handbook of Visual Criminology

Author: Michelle Brown
Publisher: Taylor & Francis
ISBN: 9781317497547
Release Date: 2017-07-06
Genre: Social Science

Dynamically written and richly illustrated, the Routledge International Handbook of Visual Criminology offers the first foundational primer on visual criminology. Spanning a variety of media and visual modes, this volume assembles established researchers whose work is essential to understanding the role of the visual in criminology and emergent thinkers whose work is taking visual criminology in new directions. This book is divided into five parts that each highlight a key aspect of visual criminology, exploring the diversity of methods, techniques and theoretical approaches currently shaping the field: • Part I introduces formative positions in the developments of visual criminology and explores the different disciplines that have contributed to analysing images. • Part II explores visual representations of crime across film, graphic art, documentary, police photography, press coverage and graffiti and urban aesthetics. • Part III discusses the relationship of visual criminology to criminal justice institutions like policing, punishment and law. • Part IV focuses on the distinctive ethical problems posed by the image, reflecting on the historical development, theoretical disputes and methodological issues involved. • Part V identifies new frameworks and emergent perspectives and reflects upon the distinctive challenges and limits that can be seen in this emerging field. This book includes a vibrant colour plate section and over a hundred black and white images, breaking down the barriers between original photography and artwork, historic paintings and illustrations and modern comics and films. This interdisciplinary book will be of interest to criminologists, sociologists, visual ethnographers, art historians and those engaged with media studies.

A Visual Approach for Green Criminology

Author: Lorenzo Natali
Publisher: Springer
ISBN: 9781137546685
Release Date: 2016-11-07
Genre: Social Science

This book brings the visual dimension of environmental crimes and harms into the field of green criminology. It shows how photographic images can provide a means for eliciting narratives from people who live in polluted areas – describing in detail and from their point of view what they know, think and feel about the reality in which they find themselves living. Natali makes the argument for developing a visual approach for green criminology, with a single case-study as its central focus, revealing the importance of using photo elicitation to appreciate and enhance the reflexive and active role of social actors in the symbolic and social construction of their environmental experiences. Examining the multiple interactions between the images and the words used to describe the socio-environmental worlds in which we live, this book is a call to open the eyes of green criminology to wider and richer explorations of environmental harms and crimes. An innovative and engaging study, this text will be of particular interest to scholars of environmental crime and cultural, green and visual criminologies.

​​​ Das Buch bietet eine verständliche Einführung in die videographische Methode. Es richtet sich an Forschende, die „natürliche“ Situationen mit der in ihnen stattfindenden Interaktion und Kommunikation mit Hilfe von Videodaten interpretativ untersuchen möchten. Der Band verschafft einen Überblick über den derzeitigen Stand der in den letzten Jahren aufgeblühten verschiedenen Verfahren der Videodatenanalyse. Dies dient als Hintergrund zur Bestimmung der methodologischen Prinzipien der Videographie als interpretativem Verfahren. Ausführlich wird anhand von Beispielen die fokussierte Ethnographie als Grundlage der Videographie dargestellt, ebenso wie die Videointeraktionsanalyse als Kernstück der Analyse videographisch erhobener Daten. Ausgehend von der Forschungserfahrung der Autoren werden methodische Forschungsschritte sowie praktische und technische Fragen und Probleme behandelt, die im Forschungsprozess auftreten. Der Band bietet außerdem einen Ausblick auf die theoretische Einbettung der Videographie im Rahmen der interpretativen Ansätze der Sozialforschung. Er ist mit ausführlichen Serviceteilen versehen, die weiterführende Literatur, technische Hinweise und exemplarische Studien enthalten.
