Abstract and Keywords

To represent the plurality of methods used within the Critical Studies Security community, this chapter surveys discourse analysis, corporeal analysis, ethnographic research, new materialism, and field analysis. Separating these practical methods from their ontological stakes makes critical analysis mutually intelligible and fosters a collobarative and plural discussion that shies away from doctrinaire orthodoxy. As a guide for analysis, this chapter also sets out some consensus positions about basic methods that are used in this field that critical scholars share and use in different theoretical traditions for their research design: idetifying standards of clarity, fit, and reflexivity by which critical scholarship can be judged, not on its ethical claims or its take on criticality, but rather on grounds of rigor.

Keywords: method, discourse analysis, corporeal analysis, ethnographic research, new materialism, field analysis
