Main Article Content
The Second International Visual Research Methods Conference was interdisciplinary, innovative, questioning and poignant; therefore when approached by Visual Methodologies to provide a review, I was pleased to accept the invitation. Firstly, it provided an opportunity to revisit the experience of the conference; and its ideas, techniques and concepts. Secondly, being part of the inaugural publication of this post-disciplinary visual journal resonated well with the collaborative ethos of the conference; and I expect to see many conference papers as forthcoming contributions to Visual Methodologies. Unfortunately, I could not report on all of the sessions, exhibitions and films; at best the review is selective and subjective. However, my review should offer an insight into the valuable methodological, ethical and theoretical contributions generated by the event.
