Research Methods for English Studies, Paperback / softback Book

Research Methods for English Studies Paperback / softback

Edited by Gabriele Griffin

Part of the Research Methods for the Arts and Humanities series


This title introduces students to a range of research methods deployed in the study of English.

With a revised Introduction and with all chapters revised to bring them completely up-to date, this new edition remains the leading guide to research methods for final-year undergraduates, postgraduates taking Masters degrees and PhDs students of 19th- and 20th-century Literary Studies.

Written by a range of distinguished contributors, each chapter centres on one particular method, offering both concrete practical advice on how to utilise it and exploring some of the methodological issues that are involved in the use of the particular method.

The chapters cover research methods familiar to English scholars such as textual analysis, as well as those less commonly explored such as visual and quantitative methods, which also contribute significantly to research in English Studies.

Other approaches discussed include auto/biographical methods, discourse analysis, interviewing, archival methods, ethnographic methods, oral history, creative writing as a research method, and research using information and communication technologies (ICTS). Gabriele Griffin is Professor of Women's Studies at the University of York.

Her publications include the co-edited volumes The Emotional Politics of Research Collaboration (2013), The Social Politics of Research Collaboration (2013), and Theories and Methodologies in Postgraduate Feminist Research: Researching Differently (2011).

She is the General Editor for Edinburgh University Press of the Research Methods for the Arts and Humanities series.
