Our lives are increasingly visual and dominated by images that we make
ourselves and those that we consume from others. However, in most of our
research we rely on words and numbers to make sense of the phenomenon. The
visuals are added as an extra illustration and often relegated to the
background. We hardly reflect upon the production, framing and ideas of its
representations. Yet, there is an emerging visual turn in social sciences,
which brings to question the politics of visibility/invisibility. Who are
we visualizing for whom, and in whose frame are we standing? In addition,
the use of visual methods often enriches the dialogue, encounter or rapport
with the participant. How can we more effectively use and present visual
images both as a method and output in our research? In this panel we
welcome researchers on mobilities and development to bring out their visual
materials and talk about them, in order to unpack the meanings these visual
convey and push the boundaries of interpretations. We are interested in
different visualization methods – e.g. digital media, including photos,
videos and documentaries, drones, and GIS – used in combination with
historical, geographical and ethnographic descriptions of specific places
and people. Watching the images, we would discuss what the (co-)production
of the image means to, and how it contributes to our scientific work.

We encourage mobility researchers working in different geographical
contexts and with different disciplinary backgrounds (geography,
anthropology, gender studies, media studies) to submit abstracts to this

*Please submit abstracts (250 words maximum*) to Ajay Bailey ,
