15 Credits SPRING



Aims/Description: The module explores different approaches to understanding social reality by collating, creating and analysing images. The course will cover several methods such as compositional analysis, content analysis, and discourse analysis. It will also cover the use of different media such as magazine images, video and photography in social research. Ethical and intellectual property issues will also be dealt with such as copyright, anonymity and consent during the research process. Including the visual as part of a mixed methodology in research will underpin much of the material. The students will be expected to take photographic images during the course.

Restrictions on availability: Students must have means of capturing digitial images (eg. camera phone). Students with visual impairment should consult the Module Convenor before enrolling in order to assess feasibility and adjustments to assessment/delivery required....
