Off to BAM conference – back blogging Monday 16th Sept

by on September 9, 2013

We are off to Liverpool for the rest of the week.  We will still be tweeting any age related highlights from the BAM conference but not back to full blogging capacity until Monday 16th September.

Rebecca and I are presenting on Wednesday morning in the Research Methods track in the Earl of Derby, Box 3&4 (!)

Extending eresearch: engaging with the visual in web 2.0 data (Paper 317)


In this paper we set out both our experiences to date and our expectations of future empirical endeavours exploring the visual in web 2.0 data.  We aim to engage with the practical issues of visual research in a web 2.0 context, whilst also addressing broader methodological issues.  Our focus is an investigation of visual data relating to the topic of age at work.  We outline our approach and discuss two distinct stages of our research: that involving our own analysis and the subsequent piloting of photo elicitation and response techniques (specifically via focus groups and electronic survey).  We use these experiences to reflect on the benefits and risks of these approaches, particularly in light of Easterby-Smith et al’s comment that already “the range of types and forms of qualitative methods is, depending on your perspective, exhilarating or exhausting” (Easterby-Smith et al., 2008, p. 420).  Our experience to date suggests it is possible for it to be both.
