Michael Pickering Provides students with a clear overview of research methods in cultural studies, along with guidelines on how to put these methods into operation. He advocates a multimethod approach, with students drawing from a pool of techniques and approaches suitable for their own topics of investigation. The book covers the use of experience and how narratives make sense of experience. It also explores cultural memory and historical presentation as well as visual images and both spoken and written forms of discourse. This volume will be of enormous value to anyone involved in cultural inquiry and analysis.

Michael has published over a hundred articles and chapters in edited collections. These cover a number of areas including popular music, racism and popular culture, imperialism and theatrical history, Mass Observation, working-class writing, news and documentary, stereotyping and representation, humour and comedy, creativity and cultural production, media and memory, and historical hermeneutics. Overall his work covers the fields of media and communication studies, social and cultural history, and the sociology of art and culture. Michael has also written extensively on research methods, having edited collections on methods in cultural studies and memory studies, and been co-author of Researching Communications (Bloomsbury, 2007), along with David Deacon, Peter Golding and Graham Murdock. He has recently completed a major AHRC research project on music in the workplace, with Marek Korczynski of Nottingham University and Emma Robertson of La Trobe University. Their book, Rhythms of Labour: The History of Music at Work in Britain, is published by Cambridge University Press. With Emily Keightley, Michael is currently involved in a research project funded by the Leverhulme Trust on media and memory. Their book The Mnemonic Imagination is published by Palgrave Macmillan.
