Margarethe Kusenbach is Associate Professor and Associate Chair at the Department of Sociology, University of South Florida, Tampa. She received her Ph.D. from the University of California, Los Angeles, in 2003. Dr. Kusenbach’s research focuses on urban and community sociology, social psychology, qualitative research methods, and social aspects of disasters. She is particularly interested in issues of belonging, identity, and mobility in marginalized populations. In 2013, she edited a book (with Krista Paulsen) titled: Home: International Perspectives on Culture, Identity, and Belonging. Dr. Kusenbach is known for developing the mobile method of the «go along» used in ethnographic and neighbourhood-based research.
Abstract of the lecture:
In my presentation, I suggest that the technique of “going along” with study participants during their daily routines in local and trans-local environments is an innovative research method that provides new insights and complements more traditional ethnographic approaches, such as participant observation and sit-down qualitative interviews. Moving along “with” subjects offers researchers unique windows into examining and understanding the complex patterns of “getting along” with others in the shared spaces of homes, neighborhoods, cities, and borderlands. I draw on examples from my own research and the works of other scholars to illustrate the current variety and productivity of go-along research. I also discuss both advantages and limitations of a mobility framework, and of mobile ethnographic methods, for the study of social interactions and relationships in private, parochial, and public territories.
