  11. 11. What is it about “the visual” that is allowing us / forcing us to have these discussions? – Are we reinforcing the idea / suggesting that there is something “special” about “the visual”? – What is “special” about “the visual”? Anything? Why are these discussions not taking place in “other” spaces? – What should we do to be changing this? – Within and outside “the academy” The visual makes “it”* visible. * I don’t know what “it” is
  12. 12. Research methods? [what is appropriate v’s popular] Partnerships; collaboration Participatory? (re)presentation? What constitutes knowledge? – Whose knowledge? – How is knowledge constructed? ethics methods knowledge production power politics of knowledge time funding precarity What is data? [process? output? artefact? engagement?] • Who owns data? • Does data have an impact? Dissemination and sharing • What is research translation? • What should be communicated? • How to communicate? • Advocacy? Who benefits? involvement
