  • Participatory Community Research: Theories and Methods in Action (APA Decade of Behavior Volumes)

    Participatory Community Research addresses the gap between scientific knowledge and the practice of community based research methods. Unlike the traditional approaches to research in which researchers generate the ideas for projects, define the methods, and interpret the outcomes, the approaches of participatory research empower community populations to shape the research agenda. Their participation often results in generating greater sociopolitical awareness and affecting large systemic change in the community. Although this type of research h...

Designed to situate participants as experts on their lives and their experiences, photovoice is a powerful and visceral approach to policy change efforts. In this book, the photovoice methodology is conceptualized as...

Mertens shows how to formulate research questions based on community needs, develop rese...

The book reviews core elements of ELA instruction―response to literature, classroom discussion, research, and digital literacy―and demonstrates how these...

    Gubrium and Harper describe how visual and digital methodologies can contribute to a participatory, public-engaged ethnography.

The authors describe how to use photovoice, film and video, digital storytelling, GIS, digital archives and exhibits in participatory contexts, and...
