> Please join us for Change next Tuesday (Jan 22) at noon in *CSE 203*.
> *Who:* Sara Vannini, UW Communication & Integrated Social Sciences
> *What:* Visual methodologies in participatory ICT4D
> *When:* Tuesday, Jan 22, 12-1pm
> *Where:* CSE 203
> *Abstract:*
> In this talk, Sara Vannini will present the reflections from a published
> article with colleagues Caitlin Bentley (Nanyang Technological University)
> and David Nemer (University of Kentucky), which analyzes the use of visual
> methodologies in participatory research in ICT4D. While new methods are
> needed to shed light on unique and integrative concepts of ICT across
> cultures, this presentation explores the use of visual methods to
> facilitate critical engagement with ICT—defined as situational awareness,
> reflexive ICT practice and power and control over ICT. This definition of
> critical ICT engagement is informed by a cultural identity lens, and
> intends to improve participatory methods in ICT for Development (ICT4D) and
> community technology design and application. Three case studies will be
> presented, each employing visual methods to shed light on concepts and
> practices of ICT cross-culturally. The presentation aims to offer a way for
> researchers and practitioners to engage with cultural issues in
> community-based research and design using visual methodologies.
