Abstract

In this paper I consider the importance of space and place in ethnographic educational
research. The paper draws on research that took place at Educational Video Center
(EVC), a non-profit media education centre in New York City (NYC). In this paper I
articulate EVC as a place imbued with meaning from the pedagogical practices that
take place within and regarding it and argue for a consideration of spatiality in
ethnographic educational research. I consider the role of the city landscape in order to
identify how knowledge is emplaced and represented through digital, visual
technology and conclude by outlining the criticality of spatialising our ethnographic
practices.
