Visual Research Methods in the Social Sciences: Awakening Visions  is an indispensable resource for students, researchers and teachers  seeking to use visual sources in their research and understand how  images work. This fully updated edition adds questions and activities  for studies and many new images and models as well as additional  exploration of social and theoretical contexts and examples of current  visual and multimodal research.

Due to the  proliferation of image-centric social media and the growing potential  for ‘fake news’, being able to critically assess media and other visual  messages is more important than ever. For researchers embarking on  visual research this book offers useful practical guidance and  real-world examples from seasoned researchers exploring cultures as  varied as: religious cults in Venezuela, the Beer Can Regatta in Darwin,  Mapuche Indians in Chile and graffiti artists in Sheffield. It offers  an integrated approach to visual research, building compelling case  studies using a wide range of visual forms, including: archive images,  media samples, maps, objects, video, photographs and drawings alongside  traditional qualitative approaches. Examples of the visual construction  of ‘place’, representations of social identities and different  approaches to analysis are explored in the first section of the book,  whilst the essays in the second section highlight the creativity and  innovation of four leading visual researchers.

This  new edition will prove valuable for both experienced visual researchers  and those embarking on visual research in the social sciences for the  first time.
