Event description
This Postgraduate Research symposium seeks to examine the ways in which ‘lived experience’ is translated through practice led research.

About this Event

LOCATION - Researcher Hub - RHG/11 - University of Huddersfield

Abstracts that promote debate and discussion about methodologies of photographic research and how they are linked to notions of lived experience (historically, theoretically and through practice). What are the challenges and opportunities created by photographic research methods? How do research practitioners engage with these challenges and opportunities to explore lived experience and its manifestations in photography?

The purpose of this symposium will be to foster relationships between a wider community of practitioners working with photography in a research context.
