Abstract

Using a co-ethnographic approach to focus on one person’s story, we explore how a sense of place may be evident in self constructed Gypsy-Traveller identity and narrative. Mary’s recounting of her experiences of living and growing up in the Caldewgate district of Carlisle (UK) illustrates the place of family relations as a key element of Gypsy-Traveller self identity and suggests, we believe, the centrality of family and internal relationships as a strong feature in the construction of personal notions and narratives of place for Gypsy-Traveller people.
