Bella Dicks has published and researched in the areas of qualitative methodology, heritage and museums, regeneration and post-industrial identities, cultural display and digital methodologies. She has written a number of books, including: Heritage, Place and Community (University of Wales Press, 2000); Out of the Ashes (with David Waddington, Chas Critcher and David Parry: Routledge, 2001); Culture on Display (Open University Press, 2004); Children, Place and Identity (with Jonathan Scourfield, Mark Drakeford and Andrew Davies: Routledge, 2006) Qualitative Research and Ethnography (with Bruce Mason, Amanda Coffey and Paul Atkinson: Sage 2005) and edited the four-volume set Digital Qualitative Research Methods (Sage 2012).

My research interests are underpinned by a sustained, critical methodological engagement with ethnographic and qualitative research. This includes work on contemporary developments in qualitative data analysis, writing and representation, as well as a focus on of the self and (auto)biography in qualitative inquiry. I have led and been involved in a number of funded projects focussing on qualitative research methods and methodological development. I am currently the Director of the Cardiff Node of the ESRC National Centre for Research Methods (NCRM) Qualitative Research Methods in the Social Sciences: Innovation, Integration and Impact (QUALITI) (2005-8).
