RESEARCH METHODS ON GENDER AND MANAGEMENT SEMINARS – ONLINE SERIES HOSTED BY LANCASTER UNIVERSITY MANAGEMENT SCHOOL
The fourth seminar of the series will focus on Visual Research with speaker Professor Alexia Panayiotou (University of Cyprus)
Host: Professor Sharon Mavin (Newcastle University)
Visuality and gender are inextricably linked. Ever since feminist theorists exposed and problematized ‘the male gaze’, we understood that the visual is inherently political: what do we see or not see? and, who sees what, in whom, and how? This seminar seeks to (1) explain the importance of incorporating the visual in our research, thereby shedding light on the aforementioned questions; and (2) present the richness of visual research methods employed in the study of gender and organizations. Specific examples are discussed, both in regard to the use of existing visual data and how visual data can be generated for this field of study. This seminar highlights then, not only a variety of visual methodologies and methods, but also emphasizes how such methods can lead to a deeper understanding of gender and gendering in organizations.
