This volume presents a collection of approaches to the emerging field of video analysis in the social sciences. Although the importance of visual qualitative methods has increased, video analysis cannot draw upon a single method or methodology. Therefore this book will structure the diverse approaches in order to identify their traditions. It assembles studies from linguistic anthropology as well as conversation analysis, sociological hermeneutics, ethnography, phenomenology and finally focused ethnography. Practical questions will be asked, as for instance, how the fact of being filmed affects the situation that is being filmed and theoretical questions will be posed, as for example, whether actions are subject to contingency or whether they are pre-determined.
