Nov 09 2020 Posted: 08:00 GMT

Dr Kathy Reilly has published a new book working with co-editors Dr Lisa Moran (Edgehill University, UK) and Dr Bernadine Brady (School of Political Science and Sociology, NUI Galway). This new volume draws together scholarly contributions from diverse, yet interlinking disciplinary fields, with the aim of critically examining the value of narrative inquiry in understanding the everyday lives of children and young people in diverse spaces and places. Incorporating insights from sociology, geography, education, child and youth studies, social care, and social work, the collection emphasises how narrative research approaches present storytelling as a universally recognizable, valuable and effective methodological approach with children and young people. The chapters point to the diversity of spaces and places encountered by children and young people, considering how young people ‘tell tales’ about their lives, highlighting the multidimensionality of narrative research in capturing everyday lived experiences.
