Today we launched our report into Men’s Drinking Cultures in Victoria, in partnership with VicHealth. The project was led by Steve Roberts, and involved a collaboration with some terrific colleagues, including Karla Elliot, Michael Savic, Brittany Ralph, Jo Lindsay, Kerry O’Brien and Dan Lubman.

One of the research methods we used in the study was based on the social media scroll back method I developed with Sian Lincoln. Rather than relying on abstract recollection and pure memory-work, applying the scroll back method in this study allowed us to get at specific drinking events with our participants, in interviews, to prompt story-telling and reflection on who was there, what was happening, volume of alcohol consumed, and social practices (rounds, shots, pre-drinks, etc.).
