Abstract

Walking interviews have been used with growing frequency to understand the relationships between people, spaces and social worlds, but they typically rely on a single researcher-participant relationship. In Andrew Clarks’ ‘Walking Together: Understanding Young People’s Experiences of Living in Neighbourhoods in Transition’, we amble in groups through neighbourhoods and territories, taking in the parks and shelters that offer places to gather. Introducing a mobile focus group method as a way of understanding young people’s individual and collective experiences of life in deprived urban neighbourhoods across England, the chapter outlines the challenges and opportunities afforded by the approach and reflects on the implications for knowledge arising from this collective and interactive method.
