Overview

This book illuminates the rich and creative uses of biographical and life history approaches in studying adult and lifelong learning, in diverse ways and settings, across many European countries. It draws on the work of internationally known scholars - under the auspices of the European Society for Research on the Education of Adults (ESREA) - and encompasses learning in the workplace, in families, communities, schools, colleges and universities, as well as in the professions, and in managing processes of migration and building new social movements. The reader will discover, in these pages, a compelling chronicle of the interplay of learning across people’s lives - formal, informal and intimate - and how to make sense of this, using interdisciplinary perspectives. The book will speak to researchers - new and experienced - and educators and other professionals wanting to extend their understanding of learners and learning as well as the potential of this ‘family’ of research methods.
