Keywords: image and social representation of reality visual sociology alcohol consumption/social drinking

The image as a way of representation of reality in the contemporary society. In my course, I usually organize three special seminars on that topic.   

Visual sociology as a methodology of the social research is another context of interest, that I've applied in both the principal directions of the social use of photography study: "with" and "on the images".

The consumption of alcohol, especially by young people, is the last main theme, especially considering the cultural and social frame of analysis, in comparison with a pathological approach.
