what is a lit review in a dissertation

what is a lit review in a dissertation

Literature reviews involve collecting information from literature that is already available, similar to a long essay. It is a written argument that builds a case from previous research (Machi and McEvoy, 2012). Every dissertation should include a literature review, but a dissertation as a whole can be a literature review. In this section we discuss literature reviews for the whole dissertation.
There are advantages and disadvantages to any approach. The advantages of conducting a literature review include accessibility, deeper understanding of your chosen topic, identifying experts and current research within that area, and answering key questions about current research. The disadvantages might include not providing new information on the subject and, depending on the subject area, you may have to include information that is out of date.

Step 1: Review the materials that you used in your [See Stage 1: Initial literature survey] and the feedback you received from your committee.

Students are able to gain necessary research skills through a range of courses and are invited to attend and offer papers to the Centre For Life History & Life Writing Research seminar series. We also have a close working relationship with the Mass-Observation Archive and Special Collections at the University of Sussex. Current students are working on, for example, the history of community publishing, gender in a peace activist movement of the 1960s, a fictional biography of a Victorian forbear and auto biographical motivations in contemporary culture. Recently completed theses include attitudes towards abortion before the 1967 abortion reform legislation, popular memory and World War II in Japan and life histories of heroin users.
The Centre for Life History and Life Writing Research is the leading centre of its kind in this country. It offers you the opportunity to research a range of subjects using life history methodologies.
