This chapter outlines some of the key historical and epistemological shifts that have affected how visual and audio-visual methods have been understood and used in the social sciences. It details the technological advances and broader theoretical transitions that have enabled new opportunities for working with teams across disciplinary, geographic, and cultural boundaries. It uses the Day in the Life audiovisual, quasi-ecological methodologies as an exemplar where possible, of a more collaborative and participatory research design that uses visuals and reflection to foster reciprocity between researchers and participants, minimize power barriers and produce new knowledge, while amplifying the authenticity of the research findings.

Keywords: Audio Visual Methodologies, History of Visual Methods, Interdisciplinary Research, Participatory Research Design, Research Technologies.
