Beschrijving Walking Methods

This book introduces and critically explores walking as an innovative 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, sociologically and in relation to biographical and arts-based research, as well as new work on mobilities, the digital, spatial and the sensory.


The book is organised into three sections: theorising; experiencing; and imagining walking as a new method for doing biographical research. There is a key focus upon the walking interview as biographical method (WIBM) on the move to usefully explore migration, memory, urban landscapes, as part of participatory, visual and ethnographic research with marginalised communities, artists and as re-formative and transgressive. The book concludes with autobiographical walks taken by the authors and a discussion about the future of the walking interview as biographical method.


Walking Methods combines theory with a series of original ethnographic and participatory research examples. Practical exercises and a guide to using walking as a method help to make this a rich resource for social science researchers, students, walking artists and biographical researchers.
