This chapter builds a link between discussions of spaces, things and bodies, and children’s social lives. It explores how children’s practices are related to their encounters with other people in Kopčany and commences the discussion about the role of other people in how children organise their activities in time and space. These encounters and practices are conceptualised as relational performances of children’s relationships to other people in particular spaces and times. Thematically, the chapter investigates two overlapping but distinctive themes: low-level sociability, drawing on the figure of ‘stranger’; and children’s encounters within spatial and temporal settings and constraints, drawing on ethnomethodological perspectives.

Keywords:   encounter, circumscribed routines, stranger, ethnomethodology, time-space patterns
