Video "talks back" in a relational research approach

Mumford, Clare (2016). Video "talks back" in a relational research approach. Qualitative Research in Organizations and Management, 11(2) pp. 92–109.



The author argues for the use of unedited, fixed-camera-position video footage in relationally responsive research grounded in Bakhtinian dialogic theory. The paper offers an empirical example of such a use, and shows how this contrasts with an ethnomethodological interactionist use of similar types of video footage.
