This session is for researchers using 'visual methods' – in the broadest definition of the term – in their work. Visual methods have long been practised in different disciplines, and with the development of digital technologies their place has been further highlighted in recent years.

However, recognising the need for a further effort to synthesise fragmented practices, the session aims to bring together visual anthropologists and sociologists, cartographers in human geography, and multimodal analysts in digital communications, to name a few. The unique contribution of this session is that it will provide a forum where participants can draw methodological inspirations from one another beyond disciplinary boundaries and traditions.

To that end, we are inviting submissions that will reflect the diversity of approaches. Doctoral and early career researchers are particularly welcome to join.
