Seminar: Exploring the use of Visual Media in the Communication of Research

This exploratory seminar will bring together a range of social science researchers and visual media experts, working within and across a variety of fields, to explore the challenges and opportunities of using visual media in the representation of research findings.

The role of visual media in the communication of qualitative and quantitative research findings is underresearched. These can include: mapping and graphics; film and video; and hyper- and multi- media websites. Key issues that will be addressed and debated at the seminar include:

  • contested notions of voice, agency, ethics, reflexivity and interpretation;
  • the role (or not) of participants in relation to representation and dissemination of research findings;
  • remit, control and collaboration for researchers and disseminators in mediated research findings;
  • the implications for researchers, research and findings in using visual media for dissemination;
  • responsibilities, challenges and opportunities in representing data to a diverse and distinct audiences;

and

  • funding, feedback and impact in using visual media to communicate research findings.
