Just published “”Geomedia-Based Methods and Visual Research” in “Advances in Visual Methodology”

Lapenta F. 2012, “Geomedia-Based Methods and Visual Research. Exploring the Theoretical Tenets of the Localization and Visualization of Mediated Social Relations with Direct Visualization Techniques” in “Advances in Visual Methodologies” Ed Sarah Pink 2012, SAGE

In this chapter I discuss how contemporary shift towards patterns of relocalization of mediated interactions and the emergence of new heterogeneous time and space dimensions, is constructed by and intertwined with new location-based communications technologies. In doing so, I examine how these shifts imply new contexts; new topics; and themes of investigation in, and subsequently advances in, research methodologies for contemporary visual researchers. My central focus is on digital mapping and the electronic and technological bases through which these visualization systems are engaged . I suggest that these new electronic architectures and visualization software and applications frame a context where both new topics and techniques of (visual) sociological research are emerging.

The book, edited by Sarah PInk, explores how new practice-based, theoretical and methodological engagements are developing and emerging in research practice; the impact new approaches are having on the types of knowledge visual research produces and critiques; the ways visual research intersect with new media; and the implications of this for social and cultural research, scholarship and intervention.
