Social Science on the Move: Mobile Research and Researching the Mobile
This seminar style workshop will introduce you to the theories, methods and politics of mobilities research and mobile methods. Following an introduction to the 'mobilities paradigm' and its precursors, the discussion presented in the seminar is divided into two sections: mobile research and researching the mobile. The first half of the seminar will thus consider the ways in which mobility practices might be usefully added to your existing research projects in order to produce and elicit data 'on the move'. Methodological and practical are considered alongside approaches to analysing such data. The second half of the seminar is concerned with developing your understanding of the theoretical development and empirical focus of mobilities research by drawing on a live research project and the challenges for analysis that a mobilities lens brings.
In sum the workshop presents an opportunity for you to consider an approach to researching the social in which mobility is both the object, method and analytic lens of inquiry.
