“In Search of …” New Methodological Approaches to Youth Research
This edited collection will be focusing on the new methods in the field of youth research. Today’s transnational and online environments, where young people spend an increasing amount of their time, affect the research methodologies, ethics and data. With the rise of new contexts and advanced methods for gathering and analysing empirical material, contemporary research needs to combine various approaches and methods and pose new research problems. This collection of peer-reviewed chapters gives an overview of the new challenges, approaches and advanced methods when investigating young people. The first part of the book - In search of Crossings - is about combining different angles and techniques and stressing the benefits of interdisciplinary and/or multi-methods research. Second part of the book – In search of Participation - focuses on the questions of how youth can be better involved in research and which means and techniques contribute to quality of ethnography. Third part of the book - In search of Stories - concentrates on ways of incorporating various (textual, visual) narratives into our analyses.
