ASG The Roles of Photography in Academic Research and Communication
Photography and the photographic image have played a central role in research in many different disciplines. Despite this, we seldom reflect over photography’s role in research, and even less compare and discuss the different ways in which photography is approached and used across disciplines. The primary aim of this ASG is to create increase our knowledge, especially cross-disciplinary knowledge about how photography and the photographic image is used in research, scientific analysis and communication. Research on and research with images become increasingly more important and voluminous as a consequence of advances in photographic technology and its popular use, and the larger role that photographic images play in society.
