This paper reflects on experiences of researching family resemblances, a quirky research theme which can feel both familiar and elusive. What can we learn by researching things, such as resemblances, that blur the boundaries between tangibility and intangibility? Mason argues that in/tangibles can often play an important part in everyday life and that we need to take a creative, inquisitive and truly inter/extra-disciplinary approach to researching them.
