Visual Sociology Exhibition: Far and Wide

Panels and Plenary
Visual Sociology and Methodologies

The Visual Sociology Exhibition: Far and Wide is a  visual exploration of how research methods, from a range of disciplines, have the potential for the inclusion of different ideas, geographies, cultures, countries, schools of thought and disciplines, encouraging cross-collaboration and an interdisciplinary approach to exploring the increasing visual climate in which we live. This exhibition, an open Congress, week-long event, is open to the public and invites dialogue, response and shifts in the conceptions of visuality, research making, research makers and viewers/audience.

The exhibition is an opportunity to network, share ideas and resources to develop collaboration within the Visual Sociology and Methodology research cluster with the Canadian Sociological Association (CSA).  This event is co-sponsored with the Canadian Communication Association. The goals of the CSA Exhibition align with the goals of the CCA as a national, bilingual organization that bring together multi-disciplinary researchers in communication and study of social life. As visual data and information communicate, the CSA and the CCA share a goal of seeking to advance communication research and social studies in the belief that a better understanding of communication and social life is crucial to building a vibrant society.

This session is being held with financial support from the Federation for the Humanities and Social Sciences Aid for Interdisciplinary Sessions Fund.

The exhibit will be held daily from 10:30am – 4:30pm from May 29 to June 2.  Room: IMA310
Please join us for an opening reception May 30th at 12:30pm-1:30pm. Light refreshments will be served
