Exposing Students to Repeat Photography: Increasing Cultural Understanding on a Short-Term Study Abroad
Lemmons, Kelly K.; Brannstrom, Christian; Hurd, Danielle
Journal of Geography in Higher Education, v38 n1 p86-105 2014
Traditionally, repeat photography has been used to analyze land cover change. This paper describes how repeat photography may be used as a tool to enhance the short-term study abroad experience by facilitating cultural interaction and understanding. We present evidence from two cases and suggest a five-step repeat photography method for educators to use to increase participation and cultural interaction of students involved in fieldwork, long-haul fieldwork, and study abroad programs. We suggest that through the five steps developed in this paper that students' potential to understand and interact within the host culture is increased.
