Visual Methods in Migration Studies. An Introduction for HOMInG researchers
The aim of the seminar is to introduce the use of visual methods in migration, ethnic and racial studies. It first briefly presents the conceptual framework for visual research elaborated by Luc Pauwels in his book Refraiming Visual Social Science (2015). It then moves to some research examples in migration studies, by presenting some visual methods for HOMInG researchers. Finally, it draws from an ongoing doctoral research on cohousing between locals and refugees in order to discuss how visual methods can be adjusted and negotiated to better fit both participants’ needs and the research design.
