The Handbook of Participatory Video
Published: Thursday, 15 August 2013
By: E-J Milne, Claudia Mitchell and Naydene de Lange
In twenty-eight chapters, contributors examine historical, ethical, methodological, and technical aspects of participatory video and discuss power, ownership, and knowledge production. The Handbook is organized into six parts: Locating Participatory Video, Participatory Video as a Critical Research Methodology, Working with Visual Data, Power and Ethics in Participatory Video, Dissemination and Reaching New Audiences, and Communities and Technologies. This benchmark work takes an interdisciplinary and global approach and will be invaluable to researchers, practitioners, and students.

The Handbook of Participatory Video provides interdisciplinary insight into using and doing participatory video research, serving up both nuanced and broad-ranging perspectives on the theoretical, ethical, and methodological concerns in working with participatory video, as well as the tremendous opportunities, challenges, and benefits of such research. This work is a welcome overview of participatory video research and represents a major contribution that will be of significant interest and benefit to anyone interested in this type of work.
