Description

Social research methods are being transformed by digital technologies and developments in narrative, visual, biographic and performative work. This book introduces and explores walking as an innovative new method for doing social research, showing how its sensate and kinaesthetic attributes facilitate connections with lived experiences, journeys and memories, communities and identities. The book situates walking methods historically and in relation to new work on mobilities, the digital and the sensory. It combines theory with a series of fascinating case examples. Practical exercises help to make this a rich resource for research teaching and practice.
