Using visual methods to explore identity among women in prison in Ireland
This dataset is a series of photographs from the women’s prisons in Ireland. The data are my own and part of a large ethnographic study of the experiences of women in prison in Ireland. I took these photographs of the spaces within the prisons, including the women’s personal prison spaces, to develop my study of identity, the construction and representation of the identities of women in prison in Ireland. The data are presented here as a means of teaching the value and use of visual data in research.
