This chapter is a first hand, biographical account from a teacher working in a school in an economically and socially deprived part of Bristol. The author explores some of the insights and collaborative approaches to research gained from attending the Social Science Café. The author links this with the experience of working with school children living in one of the most deprived areas in Bristol. Overall, this has resulted in a revised approach to teaching in the discipline of Sociology, where the author now acts as a ‘co-inquirer’ with her students. Social Science in the City has provided the author with a supportive framework and provided encouragement in embarking on a Ph.D. in sociology which is focused on action research.

Keywords:   biographical, co-inquirer, action research, sociology
