Mundane Methods: Innovative ways to research the everyday
The new edited collection ‘Mundane Methods: Innovative ways to research the everyday’ is now available from Manchester University Press.
Divided into three key themes this volume explores methods for studying: materials and memories, emotions and senses, and mobilities and motion; with encounters, relationships, practices, spaces, temporalities and imaginaries cross-cutting throughout. In doing so, it draws on the work of a range of established and up-and-coming scholars researching the everyday, including human geographers, sociologists, anthropologists, urban planners, cartographers, and fashion historians.
Mundane Methods offers a range of truly unique methods - from loitering, to smell-mapping, to memory work - which promise to embrace and retain the vitality of research into everyday life. With empirical examples, practical tips, ethical considerations, and exercises, this book will be accessible to a range of audiences interested in making sense of the everyday.
