Visual Methodologies (VM) is an international peer-reviewed post-disciplinary journal, positioned to articulate the increasing fluidity between the visual and other forms of knowledge, values systems and power. The scope of VM includes visual aspects of material and social practices and their symbolic representation, as well as the use of visual media in research. VM invites contributions of original work which focus on visual practice, its sites, inhabitants and outcomes.
