Abstract

In this paper we look at Digital Storytelling (DS) as a specifically feminist epistemology within qualitative social research methods. DS is a process allowing research participants to tell their stories in their own words through a guided creative workshop that includes the use of digital technology, participatory approaches and co-production of personal stories. The paper draws on a two-day DS workshop with migrant women which was set up to understand the life stories and work trajectories of volunteers working in the women's community and voluntary sector in London. By outlining this innovative approach, the paper highlights its potential and makes a case for DS as a feminist approach to research while taking into account epistemological, practical and ethical considerations.
