This chapter aims first to provide an overview of contemporary qualitative research methods in human geography.

Second, the chapter aims to review briefly the context from which qualitative research has developed in human geography. This is achieved by examining changing schools of thought within th( discipline, recognising changes are messy, overlapping and coexisting. Third, the chapter aims to link methodological debates to wider theoretical perspectives in geography.
