Exploring Multimedia Performance in Educational Research
Carl Bagley (University Durham, UK)
DOI: 10.4018/978-1-59904-970-0.ch002
This chapter draws on the analysis and (re)presentation of qualitative research undertaken on a UK government project known as Sure Start, an initiative based on the principle of bottom up community-based engagement dealing with social exclusion. The data from interviews, observation, and documentation, arise from ethnographic immersion by the author in a local working class community over a period of two years. Based on these data the chapter explores the (re)telling of the same research tale through the lens of bounded and unbounded (re)presentational forms and in so doing envisions some of the challenges and opportunities for multimedia performance as a methodological approach within the academy.
