Bristol Conversations in Education - Conversations in Qualitative Methods
Magda Buchczyk (GSoE), Gillian Cope (GSoE) & Camilla Morelli (University of Bristol - Anthropology)
Room 4.10 35 Berkeley Square, Clifton, Bristol, BS8 1JA
This event is part of the Graduate School of Education's 'Bristol Conversations in Education' seminar series.
Within this session, we will discuss a range of methodologies involving visual forms of knowledge production. Magda Buchczyk (drawing on her work with the Horniman Museum) will argue that there is potential for the use of photography and exhibition making to enable the transformation of perspectives and development of new knowledge. Gillian Cope will discuss a project where the methods of video and audio capture were used to explore and engage with the highly complex processes of engagement and sense-making practiced at heritage sites, uncovering affective notion of knowledge and a distinct sense of place. Drawing on her research with indigenous Matses children in Peruvian Amazonia, Camilla Morelli will reflect on the challenges and opportunities of the use of drawings as visual research methodologies, enabling a detailed exploration of the children’s’ lived experiences, their knowledge and livelihoods.
