Drawing on the photo-elicitation method developed within my thesis, ‘Discourses Of Incapacity And Emancipation: An Autoethnographic Study Of CPD Courses Delivered By Western Educators In A Ugandan Context,’ I explore the use of methods that experimented with applying theoretical lenses to my own interpretations of visual images in order to produce an autoethnographic discussion. I will model the data analysis methodology utilised and the ways images can be used both to connect communities and to interrogate our own prejudices and preconceptions surrounding those frequently perceived as ‘Other.’ I demonstrate how images can be used to scrutinise moments of dis-ease (Sweetman, 2003),to challenge forms of neo-colonialism, fuelled by globalised models of formal education that reinforce a discourse of incapacity and a reiteration of a single story of African Otherness. I explore how the adoption of educational policy and practice across distinctly different cultures is a potentially negative by-product of globalisation.

This presentation will take place on Zoom. After booking you will receive an email with the link and passcode a few days before the event.
