This volume aims to bring together the wide range of approaches which characterize research in cultural studies. It is aimed at novice and practising researchers, and the student planning to do research. These approaches seek to illustrate the distinctiveness and coherence of cultural studies as a site of interaction between the humanities and social sciences. Topics covered include: the relationship beween critical theory and cultural studies; the pragmatics of cultural research and education; ethical questions and research purposes; the role of feminism in cultural studies; the uses of autobiography; the analysis of city cultures; textual analysis and ethnographic procedures; constructions of identity in relation to "race", sexuality and nationhood; the use of qualitative and quantitative data; and some of the main issues involved in generating research findings for a thesis or other publication.
