dc.description.abstract This paper looks at the issue of researching different age groups using the research method, memory-work. Four age groups have been studied: 12 years, 20 years, 40 years, and 65+ years, in an investigation of women’s and girls’ good and bad holiday experiences. The paper highlights the different ways in which the different age groups approached the key features of memory-work: the writing of memories of holiday experiences and the collective discussion and theorising of these experiences. The emergent good and bad themes of women’s and girls’ holiday experiences cannot be understood without reference to the research method - memory-work, the relationship of the different age groups to the method, the other participants, the researcher and the socio-cultural environment. It is from within this context that the memories of holiday experiences emerged. The paper highlights the difficulties of researchers interpreting the experiences of age groups different from their own. en
