Abstract

Film as a research method for collecting and analysing visual data has a long and rich history within the fields of anthropology and ethnography. This approach is less commonly used within the social sciences and still less within the political sciences. This paper goes some way towards defining the parameters of visual methodology in the political sciences by discussing the use, value and limitations of film to capture political views among young people. Drawing on a set of 19 interviews with young people discussing the UK referendum on EU membership on 23 June 2016, the paper exemplifies the method through analysis of two selected films before going on to evaluate its relevance to the study of politics. Challenges with collection, analysis and writing-up are also discussed.
