Workshop on Visual Communication of Social Science Research

In March 2015 I ran a full day workshop at University of Kent for PhD students on Visual Communication of Social Science Research for Kent Graduate School.

The aim was to attune students to the potential of visual materials at all stages of the research process, from conceptualisation, to data collection and analysis, to dissemination and impact promotion.

Attendees specialised in disciplines ranging from business to anthropology and conservation.

The day was split into blocks of seeing, creating, interpreting and showing.

Topics covered included typography, images, objects and data visualisation.

Students were asked to bring one quotation and up to 5 images that were relevant to their research.

These, together with a wider range of materials such as graphic design books, Story Cubes and THESIS were used in a series of hands on activities.
