"I Never Knew That Pictures Could Convey Such Powerful Messages": Chinese Students in an English Department Explore Visual Constructions of HIV and AIDS
Tao, Ran; Mitchell, Claudia
Changing English: Studies in Culture and Education, v17 n2 p161-176 2010
This article reports on a recent project in which 25 Chinese college students in an English Department of an urban university in China engaged in a series of photovoice workshops. In the context of a youth as cultural producers framework, the project was meant to engage youth in media production. This approach helped not only to expand their vision and experience related to HIV and AIDS, but also to mobilise their engagement in social issues related to HIV and AIDS, and to pave a path to action and social change. The study has implications across a range of areas, including implications for cross-curricular integration (in this case English) of HIV and AIDS in higher education institutions and the issue of "which language" (L1 or L2) and why in studying sexuality education.
