The Economic and Social Research Center is hosting the biennial Research Methods Festival at the University of Bath this week. If you aren’t able to attend in person, enjoy this series of posts.
Today Mike Wallace and Alison Wray presented a session titled: “How to read and write critically.” Wallace and Wray are authors of the SAGE Publications book, Critical Reading and Writing for Postgraduates. This topic is relevant to all of us in today’s fact-challenged world.
Here are a few resources we can use to learn more:
- Read author interviews.
- Visit the book’s companion website for useful study materials and videos. In particular, see the critical analysis template and the critical synopsis template. Examples that use the critical analysis frameworks are also posted on the companion website.
- Read a book excerpt.
