Visual Sociology Exhibition 2017 Ryerson University

Visual Sociology is a diverse field of study which gathers sociologists and other interdisciplinary researchers involved in visual studies and studies of the visual. As a relatively new discipline and with varying methodologies within sociology, Visual Sociology attracts growing numbers of scholars and students who are using visual approaches to their research, employing innovative visual methods, artistic & unconventional research and/or interested in the production, use and dissemination of visual knowledge.

The overall goal of the research cluster in Visual Sociology and Methodologies is to bridge discussions on theoretical and practical aspects of the creation and analysis of visual data. The cluster provides the opportunity to share, exchange and develop ideas which are relevant to Visual Sociology locally, across Canada and worldwide.
