Dialogues between audio and visual issues, beyond video: exploring cultural diversity representations in early childhood at Bogotá.

Abstract in spanish

This paper is part of a larger investigation on cultural diversity representations made by children in three kindergardens in Bogotá, two of which are attended by indigenous students and one by non-indigenous students. Under an ethnographic perspective, this article reflects on listening to musical archives as a source to promote the reflection and expression of children as the subject of research. Listening and visioning stand out as methodological alternatives to be used in research projects in which social representations made by certain communities might denote difficulties for one or other reason.
