Through the partnership of standpoint theory and photovoice method, the present study
looked at how teenagers, attending a multicultural education camp, define diversity, as well as
what the participants considered to be the benefits and limitations of diversity. Standpoint theory
gives the theoretical perspective to understand the marginalized voice of teenagers, while
photovoice provides the tools to better capture and understand their marginalized voice.
This study was situated in a professionally-developed camp, Camp CommUNITY, that
emphasizes multicultural awareness amongst teens. Nine participants and 46 pictures were
analyzed. Resulting from open coding, 11 categories and 6 themes were identified. Each theme
and definitions of diversity are approached with a dialectical perspective, yielding to the model
of dialectical dimensions of diversity. To answer Research Question 2, participants identified
both benefits and limitations for photovoice method. Additional theoretical, practical, and
methodological implications, limitations, and directions for future research are addressed.
Here’s what’s next.
