The Photography Ethics Centre aims to raise awareness about ethics and promote ethical literacy across the photography industry. Join its founder, Savannah Dodd, for a series of workshops that will explore photography ethics in a variety of contexts.
This online workshop will unpack the ethics of using visual methods in research. Visual methods include: the production of visual data by research participants (including “photovoice”); participatory co-production of visual data between researchers and participants; the production of visual data by the researcher; the use of visual data in interviews (“visual elicitation”); and the study of “found” and archival visual data. Photographic methods will be the central focus of this workshop, but other visual methods can be addressed according to the students' interests. Students will leave this workshop with a heightened awareness of the ethical implications of using visual methods and will be better equipped to implement visual methods in their research projects. Student participation is mandatory. This is the second workshop in a series of three. It is highly recommended to attend all three. The workshops can be individually booked.
