Qualitative Research Methods in Human Geography

Iain Hay, Meghan Cope

Research output: Book/ReportBookpeer-review


Qualitative Research Methods in Human Geography is a practical, in-depth guide to understanding and conducting qualitative research in human geography. Reflecting both established and modern methods and written by some of the most authoritative voices in the discipline, the text teaches students how to plan, execute, interpret, and effectively communicate qualitative research. Organized into three parts, the fifth edition is a comprehensive, engaging resource for both students and new researchers in the field. The new edition brings on Meghan Cope as co-editor and has been revised to maintain its twenty-chapter length while also retaining its comprehensive but succinct coverage of the field. All revised chapters have been carefully updated with fresh references and a look at new issues and technologies in the field that have arisen in the past five years. Several chapters have been revised significantly by a new, invigorated group of authors, and features a wholly new addition on solicited journals and narrative maps. All seven of the new authors in this edition are women and/or scholars of colour, and there is rich topical diversity in their work, particularly an emphasis on social justice, Indigenous issues, and matters of race/racism.
