About this book

This volume draws together scholarly contributions from diverse, yet interlinking disciplinary fields, with the aim of critically examining the value of narrative inquiry in understanding the everyday lives of children and young people in diverse spaces and places, including the home, recreational spaces, communities and educational spaces. Incorporating insights from sociology, geography, education, child and youth studies, social care, and social work, the collection emphasises how narrative research approaches present storytelling as a universally recognizable, valuable and effective methodological approach with children and young people. The chapters points to the diversity of spaces and places encountered by children and young people, considers how young people ‘tell tales’ about their lives and highlights the multidimensionality of narrative research in capturing their everyday lived experiences.

Reviews

“This edited collection will become a key text in the narrative research with children and on childhood. With an excellent introduction into the tradition of narrative research in the social sciences and narrative research with children and young people in particular, this edited volume features a number of accomplished and up-and-coming researchers in the field. It brings a diversity of methodological approaches to the subject, influenced by literary traditions, philosophically inspired analysis, social history traditions, and psychosocial-geographical approaches. It covers a range of topics and issues that affect children’s everyday lives, with contributions capturing children’s experiences, current and past, from a broad geographical sweep. A little treasure trove of ‘tales,’ this book is indispensable to students, researchers, and members of the public interested in the narrative life especially in our younger years.”
Sevasti-Melissa Nolas, Senior Lecturer in Sociology, Goldsmiths, University of London
