Research Methods: Book Series

Postqualitative, New Materialist and Critical Posthumanist Research

This cutting-edge series is designed to assist established researchers, academics, postgraduate/graduate students and their supervisors across higher education faculties and departments to incorporate novel, postqualitative, new materialist, and critical posthumanist approaches in their research projects and their academic writing. In addition to these substantive foci, books within the series are inter-, multi- or transdisciplinary and will be in  dialogue with perspectives such as Black feminisms and Indigenous knowledges,decolonial, African, Eastern and young children’s philosophies. Although the series' primary aim is accessibility, its scope will make it attractive to established academics already working with postqualitative approaches.

This series is unique is providing short, user-friendly, affordable books that support postgraduate students and academics across disciplines and faculties in higher education. The series will supported by its own website with videos, images and other forms of 3D transmodal expression of ideas. We envisage that the series will become very popular by lecturers responsible for the teaching of research methods courses.
