Doing International Research free pdf Globalisation and the emergence of new technologies have significantly increased the importance of research which takes an international position. This energetic and thought-provoking title encourages a reflexive, non-nationalistic approach to doing international research and sets out how to effectively plan, conduct and use this research. Williams introduces a range of frameworks, from desk-based studies and traditional ethnography to the use of internet, satellite and genetic data, and grounds them in exciting, interdisciplinary examples. The book explores: *Home-based research using international data such as documentaries, archives, international data-sets and studies of groups such as refugees, tourists and migrants *Distance research using online videos, surveys and remote methods such as video conferencing *Fieldwork abroad, both face-to-face and in local archives Chris Williams uses his significant experience conducting research and teaching around the world to provide the essential guide to carrying out international research.
