Visual Methodologies Workshop 2013
Developing Theory & Practice in Visual Methodologies
Monday, 01 July / Tuesday, 02 July 2013 | Durham University
Visual methodologies, which encompasses techniques such as mapping, story boarding and infographics, are an important and growing area of social science research. This two-day advanced workshop will equip postgraduate doctoral students with a critical understanding of how to best use visual methods in their research and develop the theory and practice of visual methodologies.
The workshop will:
- Provide an overview of visual research methodologies and its core skills and techniques;
- Consider the role of visual methods in data collection, research ethics, synthesis, analysis and dissemination;
- Explore the theoretical prospectives, epistemological traditions and latest practices that have shaped the development of visual methodologies; and
- Enable participants to translate how visual methodologies can be used to support their own research.

The overnight accommodation will be provided by Grey College.
