Visual Sociology (a Video)
Akello Stone is interesting here in talking about visual sociology. Toward the end of the video, Stone says: "I remain really optimistic that there's like a new regime of sociologists who are going to naturally gravitate towards the construction and interpretation and analysis of visual imagery, that will be their conduit, that will be something that they were immersed in as they have gone through their education, that's something they're gonna be immersed in in their personal life on a daily basis. And so if they're able to capitalize on that which they've already been doing, and use it to advance the field, use it to maintain the integrity, it's really not interfering with the original ideas and concepts and theories and things that are developed, it's a conduit for illuminating those in a new way so you can reach more people."
