Webinar: Undertaking a Literature Review

Monday, 27 April 2020

This session is about carrying out a literature review. We will cover what a literature review is and what purposes a literature review serves. We will look at examples of different types of literature review and the epistemological assumptions that lie behind them. We discuss the reporting of a literature review, contrasting narrative with other  approaches, and ask what is the difference between a literature review and a conceptual and / or theoretical  framework. We will discuss examples of literature review and you will be asked to reflect on the role that literature reviews plays in your own research. The session will be part talk and part group work.
