The use of image-based methods within the South African research context
Enter plain text and/or HTML tags.
This paper explores the possibilities of using image-based research methods within the South African context. The author is of the opinion that such a method would prove highly beneficial when conducting social science research in which the researcher must 'cross borders' of any sort (i.e. age, gender, sex, culture, race, class etc). After briefly setting out the 'realm' of image-based methods, relevant literature as well as personal experiences with this method will be discussed. A case study with teen-age mothers in a sub-economic community outside Cape Town will be used extensively to illustrate the use of such methods.
