UKLA Webinar Series – Jennifer Rowsell, Affective Aperture: Exploring the role of photography in literacy research and teaching

What would happen if literacy could be taught as a perceived practice rather than a written practice? Photographs have always carried the power to inspire people, elicit stories, and reveal truths, but what if we approached literacy learning through the aperture of cameras? This webinar explores several different research studies that use photography as a way into the teaching and learning of literacy. Building on more recent photographic movements during COVID-19 lockdown such as Girls in Isolation, the webinar offers ways of building literacy teaching and research around photography as a powerful emotional and intellectual way into meaning making.
