Environmental Futures through Children’s Eyes: Slow Observational Participatory Videomaking and Multi-Sited Ethnography

Wednesday 12 October 2022, 1.00PM to 2pm

Speaker(s): Dr Peter Sutoris, Centre for Research on Education and Social Justice

This talk is based on a recent paper in Visual Anthropology Review, which explored the use of observational filmmaking as a method for studying young people's imaginations of alternative futures. The study used a deliberately “slow” process to learn about children’s imagination of the future in light of the environmental crisis. While arguing that this methodology holds promise as a way to co-create knowledge with study participants, the article also raises ethical questions that need to be addressed when this methodology is deployed in the service of specific research agendas.
