    Research output: Contribution to journalArticlepeer-review


    In our hope to "visualize the future of event studies," this article offers practical pointers for event scholars who are interested in visual methods within their research and pedagogic practice. Prior to exploring the reasons for using visual methods as legitimate tools, this article provides an initial overview of both the history and the range of visual methods used across the social sciences, which in turn serves to contextualize visual event studies within the broader tradition of visual studies. The practicalities of designing and conducting visual research projects as well as the possible ethical dilemmas and the potential to reach wider audiences are also discussed.
