Stone Soup: Photo-Elicitation as a Learning Tool in the Food Geography Classroom
Kurtz, Hilda E.; Wood, Jason
Journal of Geography in Higher Education, v38 n4 p546-556 2014
This paper showcases self-reflective and inclusive pedagogy using photo-elicitation in a food geography course assignment. The Stone Soup project positions students as both researchers and participant-subjects in a participant-driven photo-elicitation (PDPE) study of students' foodways. Student papers for this assignment demonstrate rich understandings of the factors enabling and constraining food practices. We suggest that PDPE has value beyond being a research tool; it can empower students as learners and can offer a quality of insight and depth of engagement that are complementary to critical themes in food studies courses.
