Choose a journal article, book chapter, or book from one of the core readings from any of the modules you have taken which applies one of the methods listed below, or in the case of “notions of causation” or “ethics and positionality”, that touches directly upon either issue.
Write a critical review (see word limits below) of the way in which this method has been applied or how questions of causality or of ethics have been navigated. As part of building this critique, your review can also consider the limitations or shortcomings of relying on a single or given method. Equally, if the source you have chosen uses more than one method (e.g. a case study and discourse analysis), then your review can critique both parts of this.
As part of building your critique, you are strongly encouraged to refer to the literature from the module reading list and to add to this by searching for additional relevant references.
(Ensure that you provide a full reference for the article/chapter/book you have chosen, as well as the module reading list to which it belongs)
