12PM – 1:30PM EDT
This workshop will focus on defining the ‘intergenerational’. The aim will be to provide an overview of where the field is currently and help think through core concepts and ideas around intergenerationality. We will then situate our understanding and focus on a case study of intergenerational digital storytelling from a feminist perspective. This will be an interactive 1.5h workshop. You can expect to look through your personal archive (camera roll, photo-album) and find a picture to start a conversation around the ‘intergenerational’.
