How to do sociology with... re-assembling fashion magazines
George Kalivis, Silvia Bombardini, Tom Wadsworth and I created the collective Practice Matter. For our first workshop, we collaborated with the Methods Lab at Goldsmiths University of London and artist Femke de Vries for an online workshop on the 30th of May 2021. Using the Vogue.co.uk webpage as a case study, we explored the limits and possibilities of a research method beyond the traditions of text-based research: ✂︎ How can multiple narratives emerge from the collective re-assembling of a fashion magazine? ✂︎ How might screenshotting, annotating, extracting and connecting visuals and texts from a fashion magazine shape how we do sociology?
