Sociological Images


Lisa is the editor and principal author of the website Sociological Images, a site designed to encourage all kinds of people to exercise and develop their sociological imagination by presenting brief discussions of compelling and timely imagery that span the breadth of sociological inquiry.

The website receives about 500,000 visits per month and is followed by nearly 60,000 people via Facebook, over 20,000 on Twitter, 18,000 on Tumblr, and 12,000 on Pinterest.

Popular Reach

Sociological Images is used as a source by a wide range of news organizations and are routinely cross-posted at high profile news and opinion sites, including partial syndication agreements with Jezebel, Business Insider, Pacific Standard, and The Huffington Post.

Relevance to Teaching

While Sociological Images has a wide array of readers around the world, it was originally designed to be a teaching resource.  Today, instructors of all kinds draw on the site.  Accordingly, it has been reviewed favorably in Teaching Sociology and Visual Studies, featured in an academic article at Teaching in Higher Education, and has been granted awards from The American Sociological Association section on Communication and Information Technologies, The Pacific Sociological Association, the University of Minnesota Department of Sociology, and Multimedia Educational Resource for Learning and Online Teaching.

The website is a member of a social science community of blogs at The Society Pages.  Read more about Sociological Images here.
