Over the past 20 years visual methods have become increasingly popular as a social and political science research tool. This is because researchers have realized that images are all around us in society and the use of image-based methods can enhance our knowledge of everyday social worlds (Prosser & Loxley 2008). Over this period there has also been a shift away from the more traditional researcher-researched dichotomy to a more nuanced understanding of participant's agency and power relations within the research process. This has led to the development of more participatory and collaborative methods including for example the use of photography, drawing, film-making and art to produce data.
Dr EJ Milne is a Research Fellow at the Centre for Trust, Peace and Social Relations at Coventry University.
