Webinar: Picturing Community Engagement: What We Say Through Images and Why It Matters

September 10, 2019 @ 3:00 pm - 4:00 pm

Free

This webinar for community engagement professionals draws on research by Donahue, Fenner, & Mitchell (2015) to explore the ways that photographs convey to students, faculty, and community partners what community-engaged learning is and can be. Through content analysis of photos found on websites of service-learning at California colleges and universities, the authors found a narrow and apolitical view of service. When invited to “audience” photographs – a method of decoding images drawing on the perceptions of a group of people – students found racialized patterns of who is helped and who helps. A narrow understanding of service and racialized patterns of helping reinforce charity interpretations of service-learning.
