Abstract:

The lifecourse perspective continues to be an important subject in the social sciences. Researching the Lifecourse offers a distinctive approach in that it truly covers the lifecourse (childhood, adulthood and older age), focusing on innovative methods and case study examples from a variety of European and North American contexts. This original approach connects theory and practice from across the social sciences by situating methodology and research design within relevant conceptual frameworks. This diverse collection features methods that are linked to questions of time, space and mobilities while providing practitioners with practical detail in each chapter undertaken by researchers from across the social sciences, often working in a multi-disciplinary context, using the lifecourse as an underpinning concept and/or a method of study. This book represents the diversity of lifecourse methodologies employed in the social sciences; as well as having a concern for epistemology - how different knowledge claims are connected to our research practices.
