Join us on November 10th from 1-3pm at the Speculative Life Research Cluster (EV. 10.625) for the launch of our brand new Visual Methods Studio (VMS)!
A festive event to inaugurate the Ethnography Lab’s new working group! We will provide food for body and mind and we can’t wait to introduce the new studio to you. The VMS is a space to bring all questions/concerns about researching through the visual, visual analysis, visually representing research and everything in between. We will be planning speakers/workshops/think-tanks throughout the year about collecting data visually and how to organize it and all the aspects of research that involve visuality. We welcome all students, staff, faculty and community members wishing to work on visually oriented or visually informed research.
The studio will be run by Carolina Cambre and Mitchell McLarnon (profs in the Department of Education). Cambre (one of the founder’s of the ethnolab)’s work academically and artistically explores vernacular visualities asking: How do people produce and direct the visual space. How is the image a doing? What are the social and cultural work/ings of images? McLarnon’s interests include institutional ethnography, community-based and participatory research, visual methodologies, land-based/environmental education, adult education, community gardening, gentrification, food insecurity and urban political ecology.
