Photovoice methodology refers to presentations wherein aspects of the photovoice methodology and/or methods are discussed (e.g., theoretical underpinnings, camera type used, interview/focus group techniques). Photovoice as pedagogy refers to sessions dedicated to the use of photovoice as a teaching approach (e.g., infusion of a photovoice project into a college course).

Keynote Speaker. This conference will feature a Keynote Address from Dr. Amanda L. Miller, Assistant Professor in the Foundations and Social Advocacy Department at SUNY Cortland. Her scholarly interests focus on the lived experiences of multiply-marginalized girls of color with disabilities (i.e., cerebral palsy, intellectual disability, multiple disabilities, autism, deaf/blindness), teacher preparation for culturally sustaining inclusive education, and family-school-community partnerships with and for families from diverse backgrounds. Amanda’s research is grounded in humanizing approaches to inquiry and framed by critical theories, including Disability Critical Race Theory (DisCrit) and critical spatial theory. She has authored/co-authored eight journal articles and two book chapters and is starting two new research projects in Spring 2020.
