Advancing the use of visual methods in research on children’s cultures

This event is now fully booked - waiting list available

Glamorgan Building, Cardiff University
16 April 2008, 10am - 4.30pm
Cost: £30 per delegate (to include course materials, refreshments and buffet lunch)

This one-day seminar event will focus on advancing our use of visual methods in research projects that focus on children’s cultural worlds. A number of researchers have begun to use visual methods in research of this nature, but questions surrounding issues of anonymity, representation, age and participation still remain. This event will aim to explore these issues in an in-depth manner through a range of presentations that directly draw on research projects that have used visual methods. The event will not be a hands-on practical session; neither will it be an introduction to the use of visual methods. Attendees will be asked to draw upon their own experiences of using visual methods in recent research practice, to share their knowledge of these methods, to raise issues and concerns and to contribute to debate in this field.
