Abstract

This critical reflection provides fellow researchers with insights into the ethical challengesof using visual methods in remote environments. We draw on Fine’s notion of ‘working thehyphens’ to explore the complexities of studying a leadership program for women in science,technology, engineering, mathematics and medicine (STEMM) on a ship in Antarctica. We reflecton how our researcher identities and relationships with participants shaped the research process and emergent ethical tensions. For instance, we discuss ethical issues that arose in relation tothe contextual and relational aspects of the environment including psychological and physicaldemands of research participation in Antarctica, privacy and isolation in remote environments,and rapport. We also discuss issues related to participant-produced video diaries specificallyincluding consent, confidentiality and participant safety. To conclude, we highlight implications for visual research in other remote settings.
