Videography Introduction to Interpretive Videoanalysis of Social Situations   Hubert Knoblauch, René Tuma & Bernt Schnettler   The book provides a clear, easily accessible introduction to the interpretive analysis of audiovisual recordings. It is addressed to researchers who want to use video data to study “natural”situations and the interaction and communication taking place in these situations. The book provides an overview of the current state of video analysis, including the most recent developments in this rapidly growing field, and covers the various methodological approaches to analysis of audiovisual data. The authors explain the background and methodological principles of videography and guide researchers through the entire interpretive research process. The book includes a series of insightful examples. It starts with a brief history of visual analysis in the social sciences. Subsequent chapters present the methodological principles of focused ethnography as an approach to video data collection and establish the key role of video interaction analysis in the study of data acquired through videography. The authors, who have a comprehensive grounding in extensive research and teaching experience, explain all the systematic steps in the process of research with video data. They address practical and technical questions and potential problems arising during the research process. The book also offers a perspective on the theoretical embedding of videography in the interpretive approaches to social research. It comes equipped with detailed, user-friendly aids, including suggestions for further reading, technical pointers, and case studies. The book will be particularly useful for social researchers interested in the collection and...
