The advanced 'Visual Ethnography Workshop' was arranged due to the overwhelming interest shown in the earlier presentation of 'An Introduction to Visual Ethnography - Possibilities and Opportunities' held in May this year.
We were fortunate to once again procure the services of Professor Sarah Pink, Professor of Design and Media Ethnography at RMIT University and Professor of Social Sciences at Loughborough University in the UK. Dr Suzanne Goopy, Senor Lecturer in the School of Nursing and Midwifery (Health) and a member of GCCR, co- hosted the workshop. The sessions were held at the Southbank campus over two days on the 26th and 27th September.
This advanced workshop introduced participants to theoretical and methodological approaches to the use of photography and video in ethnographic research. It had a particular focus on how theories of place, movement and the senses could be engaged to inform both how researchers can understand the contexts in which they research, their research practice and the kinds of knowledge that visual methods can produce.
Participants developed their own practice based work, which they then presented back to the group.
