Visual Storyboards, a methodological and pedagogical experiment, develops audio-visual models of documentation in social science studies and ethnographic research, documenting the lives-livelihoods of marginalised, vulnerable populations across rural and urban India.
Research work so far has been in India, studying intersecting thematic areas of interdisciplinary research scholarship encompassing fields of:
- development studies
- migration and mobility studies
- social psychology
- political sociology of work
- development economics
- public law and development.
The model has the potential for use elsewhere.
More details on the stories completed by Visual Storyboards can be accessed from its website and video essays.
