Abstract

Based on three different research projects the article analyzes the use of outdoor and indoor go-along interviewing. A detailed structure of go-along routes is considered (starting point and next point, completed and failed destinations, pass-by places, end point). Four genres of go-along interviews are singled out at the intersection of, firstly, the “city-for-others” and the “city-for-myself” and, secondly, outdoor and indoor movement. These genres are biographical go-along interview, city walking tour, museum tour, and museum anti-tour.
