‘Routinely and Lovingly Scrutinizing Narratives’
Using PhotoVoice to Research Colonialism and Knowledge Production.

This exhibition shows research projects by masters’ students in the course, „Decolonizing Educational Research“ by Dr. Leila Angod.
The exhibition takes place as part of the series of events, „(Im)Possibilities of Higher Education“ of the student council/Fachschaft Erziehungswissenschaft.
For one month we showcase several of our PhotoVoice seminar projects.
Furthermore, through the exhibition, we pursue the goal of taking a look at the conditions of student knowledge production as well as at their appreciation and recognition.

Feel free to share and take your friends!

We look forward to seeing you!

* The individual projects are our way of enacting and and being in conversation with the key text that we studied in this course: Decolonizing Educational Research by Leigh Patel (2016). The quote in the title of the exhibition, “routinely and lovingly scrutinizing narratives” (p. 89), is cited from Patel’s book. This description of a pathway for pursuing a decolonizing practice is one that resonated with the class.

“Photovoice is a technique by which the taking of photographs or videos – usually by people who are disadvantaged, ignored, and/or discriminated against – becomes a means of both self-expression and personal and intellectual growth. In addition, participants essentially function as participatory action researchers, documenting conditions and problems in ways that can be used for community assessment and as a spur to policy makers and other officials to institute community change” (Rabinowitz, https://ctb.ku.edu/en/table-of-contents/assessment/assessing-community-needs-and-resources/photovoice/main)
