Situating video as a form of recording and analysing everyday life
Eric Laurier (Edinburgh)
Samstag, 29.09.2007: 16:30-16:55 UhrThere is a long tradition of video supporting anthropological fieldwork however in human geography it is a relatively recent arrival dependent not only on changes in theoretical approaches to how we interpret and understand space and place but also on the accessibility and low cost of digital video. In this paper I will chart the shift from more familiar qualitative techniques for recording social life such as interviewing and participant observation to filming everyday and workplace settings with video cameras. Alongside this I will mark out a shifting analytical framework from discourse and textual analysis to visual and video analysis. With video as a medium for recording and analysis comes a reconfiguration of the subjects of research and the researcher(s). Moreover a new series of practical problems emerge in terms of the fieldwork involved.
