Since my video-based doctoral study (2007-2010) which used ethnocinema as a collaborative, intercultural methodology for working creatively, I have drawn on a range of video-informed methods that hold aesthetics and collaboration at their core. As video and other digital technologies have grown in popularity across all academic fields, I have continued to track how the medium of video continues to evolve the ‘message’ of scholarly research and research for social change. In my 2016 publication Video as Method (Oxford University Press), I critically examine contemporary video researchers and the diverse and rapidly evolving ways in which video is changing the research landscape, including moves into post-representational and post-visual cultures. Through my current book project Visual Methods (also OUP, 2017), I continue to engage with a range of diverse global methods and theoretics around video and its impact on research as relationship, and digital visual methods as more than representational.
