John Aitken

Professor at Brooklyn College, City University of New York) “Seeing the Image of the City Change, Again”

Although I am probably much better known as a Sociologist who studies Urban Neighborhoods and much more likely to define myself as an Activist or Public Scholar, almost all of my work has been “visual” in one way or another.  I came to my first International Visual Sociology Association meeting  in 1997 at the suggestion of a member of  the American Sociological Association Urban Community Section who thought what I did was “Visual Sociology.”
