Webinar 2: The Ethics of Visual Analysis: Researcher Safety and Wellbeing and Responsible Practice and Publication – Tuesday 7th November 4 – 5.30pm
This workshop will focus on the ethical components that come from researching sensitive imagery, including access, anonymity, storage, researcher safety, mental health, and cybersecurity. Participants will be asked for their reflections on addressing the trauma that comes from researcher exposure to sensitive images, how researchers can report on and share content on sensitive topics in an ethical way, and the ways in which imagery is used by bad actors, especially to intimidate and traumatise marginalised communities.
