about this item

In a world that increasingly requires researchers to skim, scan, glance, and browse, we might wonder how well we actually see. And if we do manage to see, why do we usually translate seeing and thinking into words? What would happen if researchers were to draw what they see?

In this combined how-to-see / how-to-draw manual, Andrew Causey offers insights, inspiration, practical techniques, and encouragement for social scientists interested in exploring drawing as an alternative method of translating what they "see" during their research. Designed for those with no drawing experience, it includes a set of carefully calibrated exercises, grounded in the context of the social sciences, to provide comfort and confidence with drawing, as well as an understanding of the unique possibilities that drawing might offer contemporary research methods.
