Please join us as we celebrate the publication of Participatory Visual and Digital Methods, by Associate Professor Krista Harper (anthropology and public policy) and Assistant Professor Aline Gubrium (public health).

In this book, Gubrium and Harper describe how to conduct an ethnographic study that engages subjects by using visual and digital methodologies. They show how technologies such as PhotoVoice, digital storytelling, geographic information systems, digital archives, and film and video can dramatically change the traditional relationship between academic researchers and the community. Harper and Gubrium argue that by using participatory technology and methods, the research process can be more democratic, inclusive and visually appealing.

This event is sponsored by the Center for Public Policy and Administration, the hub of interdisciplinary public policy research, teaching and engagement at UMass Amherst.
