These readings aim to survey major qualitative research methods and their epistemologies. A selection of philosophical texts examines underlying ideas of conjectural and other forms of knowledge production not bound to statistical verification or experimental models. A selection of readings then provides exemplars of and writing on several qualitative methods: historiography, critical discourse analysis, rhetorical analysis, media ethnography and political economy/materialist analysis.
