Critical Event Studies

Approaches to Research

Ian R Lamond (Redaktør) ; Louise Platt (Redaktør)

«“The 14-chapter volume covers broad ground, but true to its subtitle, all content is tightly knit to the methods aspect of events research. … Graduate students, as well as more seasoned researchers, will thus find the book highly accessible and relatable. The chapters within it will make for excellent resources individually, when one has already committed to a particular method but is curious to explore the journeys others have had with it in their own event research contexts.” (Kellee Caton, Annals of Leisure Research, April, 2017)<p></p>»

Critical Event Studies is a growing field, not just within event management and event studies, but across the traditional and digital social sciences. This volume -with contributions from a range of international scholars- is the first to consider the wide variety of research approaches being used by academics from around the world, whose interests lie within the reach of this emerging field.

Critical Event Studies is a growing field, not just within event management and event studies, but across the traditional and digital social sciences. This volume -with contributions from a range of international scholars- is the first to consider the wide variety of research approaches being used by academics from around the world, whose interests lie within the reach of this emerging field. Each chapter uses one or more case examples to present and discuss different methodological approaches applicable to research within critical event studies. Students and academics alike will find inspiration and critical reflection on methodology that can support their own projects.
