Dr. Iakovos Panagopoulos (Assistant Professor at TTHE) has been elected as the Secretary of RC57 Visual Sociology, a research committee of the International Sociological Association (ISA). RC57 Visual Sociology represent a diverse field of study which gathers sociologists involved in visual studies and studies of the visual. As a relatively new discipline and methodology within the sociology, Visual Sociology attracts growing numbers of scholars and students who are using visual methods, and/or interested in the production, use and dissemination of visual knowledge.

The group aims to generate further discussions concerning the collection of  visual data in the field (in archives, photo albums, media, websites etc.) as well as the production of visual materials by the researcher (photography and documentaries) with an emphasis on methods of analysis of these data.

Another objective of the group's work is the contemporary and historical analysis of the socio-cultural locus of the visual. The key concern here is how the visual is produced, used and disseminated, and how it intersects with the verbal and other means of communication and sensual experiences.

Lastly, it is our goal to put to debate broader theoretical issues of the sociology of the visual sphere and discuss the applicability of various sociological theories in the analysis of the visual data.

The board will serve for four years from 2023 to 2027. Below is a list of all the members and organizations comprising the new board:

President: Luc PAUWELS, University of Antwerp, Belgium

Vice-President: Carolina CAMBRE, Concordia University, Canada
