Methods in Dialogue / Finding the Way Home

This video illustrates some of the innovative methods used in a research project which explored young people’s sense of place and identity  in two deprived neighbourhoods in London’s Docklands. The aim was to provide a  space of representation in which the young people felt free to express their fears and anxieties, whether through artwork, or the  stories they told about the everyday  incidents of their lives. The implications of this approach for current debates about research methodology in the social sciences are explored.   It is linked  to the discussion on inter-disciplinarity developed in Chapter four of Borderscapes.
