Walking together: Familial walking assemblages

Susannah Clement is exploring families’ walking practices in the regional city of Wollongong, Australia. In this project, the concept of ‘assemblage’ provides a lens through which the complexities of everyday walking practices of families are explored. The project uses sensory ethnographic methods such as go-alongs, interviews, drawing activities and video recordings to explore the participants embodied responses to being mobile together through their entanglements with the more-than-human, material and discursive. The project aims to uncover how child and adult participants make sense of walking through moving together as a family, as well as how participants come to know and do family through walking.
