This volume celebrates cellphilm as an emerging Participatory Visual Method which effectively and powerfully engenders learning and catalyses social change.
The book outlines the method’s theoretical framework, the role of the educator and researcher, ethical concerns of using this method, and critically explores issues which determine the production and dissemination of creative outputs. The authors demonstrate the emerging methodology of cellphilm and how it can be utilized from both pedagogical and methodological standpoints. Using examples of cellphilms created to understand social issues, this book illustrates how the method enables diverse populations, and especially with youth, to document their communities and realities using mobile devices.
By exploring cellphilm as a growing method in participatory visual research, the work fills an important gap in the fields of critically engaged community based research, pedagogy and higher education for scholars and community activists.
