Realities toolkit 17: Using participatory visual methods (Naomi Richards)
This toolkit shares insights from the ESRC ‘Representing Self – Representing Ageing’ project which used a variety of visual participatory methods: art therapy; photo therapy and community arts to research women’s experiences of ageing. Realities toolkits are no-nonsense documents about the practical side of doing social research.
Realities toolkit 16: Using self-interviews (Nicola Allett, Emily Keightley and Michael Pickering)
This toolkit describes the use of self-interviewing as one of the research methods used in the “Media of Remembering” project. The method involved participants using a small digital audio recorder to talk in their own time about their lives. The research team developed this method to give participants more opportunity to pause and reflect on the research topic, which in turn produced rich, useful data.
