«Мобильные методы»: исследование жизни в движении

The paper focuses on "mobile methods". In early 2000s New Mobility Paradigm highlighted the inability of traditional “static methods” to study “life in motion”. Later on, new methods were introduced and traditional ones were revised, which intensified the debate on methodology of studying mobilities. This paper contributes to the ongoing discussion in three ways. Firstly, it makes the distinction between “mobile methods” and “methods of moving with”. Secondly, it analyses and compares three methods of “moving with” including popular “going along”, less known “shadowing” and almost unknown “modal analysis”. The idea to bring together three methods is to show the variety of modes of moving with and thus enrich Mobility Studies research toolkit. Thirdly, the paper summarizes the pros and cons of “moving with” (and its derivatives) as a research tool. It also puts the debate on “moving with” in a broader context of discussion on “mobile methods” and “methods of mobilities research”.
