This collection of original articles illustrates how innovative visual and digital research techniques are being used in various field projects in health care, environmental policy, urban planning, education and youth development, and heritage management settings. These methodologies produce rich visual and narrative data guided by participant interests and priorities, key tools for collaborative work. The 16 chapters include digital storytelling, PhotoVoice, community-based filmmaking, participatory mapping and GIS, and participatory digital archival research, providing a portfolio of model research projects for researchers who wish to collaborate on community-based studies. The book will appeal to an audience across social science, heritage, health, education, and social service fields.
