Qualitative Research Methods in Human Geography

Fifth Edition

Edited by Iain Hay and Meghan Cope

  • Fully updated with current relevant research and examples of the most current qualitative methodologies, giving students access to the latest information in the field.
  • Five new chapters expose students to revisited or wholly new coverage on key topics such as cross-cultural research (Ch. 3), research proposals (Ch. 5), participant observation (Ch. 8), oral histories (Ch. 10), and solicited journals and narrative mapping (Ch. 14).
  • A more diverse group of contributors, with all seven of the authors new to this edition being women and/or people of colour, provides students with richer topical diversity and, particularly an emphasis on social justice, Indigenous issues, and matters of race/racism.
  • A focus on the actual practice of research in human geography helps students to grasp complex concepts and apply them to their own work.
  • Review questions and short exercises included at the end of every chapter, allow students to practice what they have learned and serve as teaching points to promote discussion and engage students in their learning.
