Leah Haverhals, PhD, MA
Seminar date: 10/13/2022
Description: Photovoice is a qualitative, arts-based method that combines taking photographs with interviewing to generate pairings of images and text—photonarratives—related to a specified topic for public display. Drawing on multiple projects conducted as VA researchers, and highlighting additional work by colleagues, we will introduce this participatory method, address scalability, distinguish photovoice from photo elicitation, and share our thinking about how this approach promotes more equitable and accessible research.
Intended Audience: Researchers and their teams, policymakers and partners, Veterans and their caregivers, and others with interest in photovoice methods and participatory research.
