Join the EUI Migration Working Group, Qualifie and CERC Migration for a presentation and discussion of the open access book “Visual Methodology in Migration Studies. New Possibilities, Theoretical Implications, and Ethical Questions”.

Published in 2021 by Springer and edited by Karolina Nikielska-Sekula and Amandine Desille, the book won the IMISCOE 2019 competitive call for books.

It explores the use of visual methodologies in migration studies through a combination of different disciplinary approaches and case studies, which include experimentations, trial-and-error and self-ethnographies. Together with the editors and four invited authors, we explore the four dimensions of the book: places and bodies; storytelling; participation; and representation.

Multidisciplinary in character, this book is an interesting read for students and migration scholars who engage with visual methods, as well as practitioners, journalists, filmmakers, photographers, curators of exhibitions who engage with a topic of migration visually. We encourage everyone to flip through it HERE before the workshop, and we look forward to a lively discussion with the authors and audience.
