Abstract:

Here is a much needed introductory textbook on empirical research methods forthe Humanities. Especially aimed at students and scholars of Literature, AppliedLinguistics, and Film and Media, it stimulates readers to reflect on the problemsand possibilities of testing the empirical assumptions and offers hands-onlearning opportunities to develop empirical studies. It explains a wide range ofmethods, from interviews to observation research, and guides readers throughthe choices researchers have to make. It discusses the essence ofexperiments, illustrates how studies are designed, how to developquestionnaires, and helps readers to collect and analyze data by themselves.The book presents qualitative approaches to research but focuses mostly onquantitative methods, detailing the workings of basic statistics. At the end, thebook also shows how to give papers at international conferences, how to draft areport, and what is involved in the preparation of a publishable article.
