methodology:

We are hoping that we are able to get our hands on some visuals of this past years pledge class during their pledging sessions.  It may be a hard task because the pledging time has already past and the newcomers have been initiated, so we’ve been told. I (Rachel) can always use pictures from when I was pledging although they are not very recent and my pledging was cut short due to hazing rituals being reported to my sororities national advisors.  If the first-hand visualizations do not surface than we will make due and use visualizations from the web as well as legal footage because we have stumbled across videos/photographs used to dictate to sororities and fraternities the harms and legal mattes of hazing.  Besides gathering photos of hazing rituals we also are gathering recent photos of sorority and fraternity events (non-hazing) showing greek life is about and what they do on campus and off campus and how they contribute.

Ethical Considerations:

We will need to get consent from all members/those photographed in the photos we hopefully will be able to use.  This shouldn’t be such a hard task considering the relationships we have with both the fraternity (Halie’s brothers) and the sorority (Rachel is a former member of).  We also have to worry about privacy issues if anyone in the photo’s object we will either have to blur/cut them out or remove the picture entirely.  Besides that we have consent from members of both organizations to interview them and use the information they give us which will be very helpful.</p>

    I think it’s great that you already have pictures pertaining to your project. I am wondering if anyone said anything about you taking pictures or did you get permission first. I am guessing since it seems that they are standing in a public place you may not have needed permission. This is definitely a good start.
