Childhoods, Communities and Social Inequalities

Telegraph Poles
Studying the visual as an influence on social inequality.
January 2009 - December 2011

Investigators: Helen Lomax (Senior Lecturer, OU Faculty of Health & Social Care) and Janet Fink (Senior Lecturer, OU Faculty of Social Sciences)

This project is linked to the ESRC Seminar Series (2009-2011), Visual Dialogues: New Agendas in Inequalities Research. It explores the potential of the visual for understanding the forms and experiences of disadvantage that shape children’s lives in local communities and for stimulating wider public conversations about the visual portrayal of social inequalities in contemporary Britain.
