Information

Ziele, Inhalte und Methode der Lehrveranstaltung

Taking a Viennese case study introduced during the course, students will learn and experiment in situ with four photography tools as a mean to collect data. The course will be divided into four sessions each presenting a specific tool:
Session 1 Collecting first impressions through photography
Session 2 Looking for photography archives
Session 3 Photography : Photo-series & Visual journal
Session 4 Photography-interview/elicitation

Each session will be organized as follow: we will start with theoretical background introducing the tool, its aim, advantages and limits. Students will then apply and test it in the field with the teacher. Students will also be required to test it further on their own (part of the evaluation). Students will then present in the classroom their first results and analysis.
The aim of the course is to introduce students with new methodological tools for qualitative research in urban studies and geography. The class is framed to 1) have students experiment with the challenges of new tools while collecting data in situ; 2) get familiar with a new dimension of qualitative research while at the same time developing a critical approach on new tools; 3) come up with new perspectives on their personal research project.
Students will be working alone and in group of 3 or 4 max.
The language of the course will be English.
Students should be proficient in English (oral and writing) and be familiar with qualitative methods and conducting fieldwork.

Art der Leistungskontrolle und erlaubte Hilfsmittel

Data collection, analysis and assessment will be part of the course evaluation. Evaluation will be done after each session with a short groupe presentation & document to hand in gathering data, analysis and assessment. Participation in the discussion will also be considered for the evaluation. A final document and presentation compiling the whole data collection, analysis and final results will be asked at the end of the course.
Part of the work will be done individually and in group.

Mindestanforderungen und Beurteilungsmaßstab
