This public webinar is part of the UK Economic and Social Research Council's "Festival of Social Sciences"*, for postgraduate research students, teachers, youth organisations and communities, interested in new ways to collect and present narratives, such as applying illustrations and graphic art or working with artists.
The webinar builds on the project Things and the mind, by Lancaster University and Smarten*, the UK's biggest student mental health network.
We live in a material world...But how can we critically account for it in our methods? We applied mixed methods: survey data and narratives scenarios gracefully provided by a number of students nationally and internationally of diverse ages and characteristics, to understand how everyday things and places affect young people's mental health and wellbeing.
We turned the data into an illustrated book, or, in other words, an amazing graphic novel developed jointly by project students, researcher and artist!
