‘Getting the seat of your pants dirty’: Space and place in ethnographic educational research

Research output: Contribution to journalArticlepeer-review

Abstract / Description of output

In this paper I consider the importance of space and place in ethnographic educational research. The paper draws on research that took place at Educational Video Center (EVC), a non-profit media education centre in New York City (NYC). In this paper I articulate EVC as a place imbued with meaning from the pedagogical practices that take place within and regarding it and argue for a consideration of spatiality in ethnographic educational research. I consider the role of the city landscape in order to identify how knowledge is emplaced and represented through digital, visual technology, and I conclude by outlining the criticality of spatializing our ethnographic practices.
