Collaborating with Cameras in Canada
In 2018 I am challenged by ethical considerations that appear when I consider the prospect of transforming a thesis that is already mostly published as articles into a monograph. The tension emerges when I consider how to proceed? For example; I could generalize all aspects of the findings; focus on the methods and produce a hand-book without focusing on ‘the what;’ or, produce a text that is largely visual as a means of giving the visual ‘evidence’ its own space that documents a group of, then youth, who participated in an activity that they would of had no way of knowing that I would still be thinking about some years later.
This paper will provide a very brief overview of the research conducted, point to the already published work, and then ask, what are the ethical considerations that also need to be brought to light in order to mitigate harm, and for their to be some benefit through wider dissemination. The author, Andriko Lozowy, humbly asks those in attendance, given what you know, what makes the most sense, what provides the greatest benefit, and what should the next steps be?
