The discipline of children’s geographies reached critical mass in the late 1990s (Holloway and Valentine 2000) with the dedicated Children’s Geographies journal launching in 2003, now issued six times per year. This signalled an increasing interest by social scientists in the spaces and places of childhood and the role of space and place in children’s lives. Given this interest, it is no surprise that children’s geographers and other childhood researchers have, in recent years, begun to pay increasingly explicit attention to the role of space and place in the conducting of research with children (Barker and Weller 2003; Pole 2007; Wang 2012).
