I’m very pleased to announce that the webpage for three online modules offering advanced training in Image Elicitation Methods, hosted by The Open University and funded by the Economic and Social Research Council, is now live. Bookmark it because the teaching team – myself, Helen Lomax and Nick Mahony – will be updating it regularly with information about module content and how to register.
The first module is on using image-elicitation methods when working with vulnerable participants, and will be offered in February 2015, with registration for that one opening in early January next year. The second one is called ‘complicating the rhetoric of participation’, and puts the contemporary emphasis on participation in a wider, political and cultural context; that will run in April. And in June, the third and final module looks at the future of image-elicitation methods in the context of digital visual culture.
And in more exciting, visual-methods-related news, details about the fourth International Visual Methods conference have just been announced. It will be held at the University of Brighton on 16-18 September 2015, and the webpage is here. The deadline for panel proposals is 16 January 2015, and for papers the deadline is 30 January 2015.
