Paul Post, Laurie Faro


Inspired by Ronald Grimes’ book The Craft of Ritual Studies, this article presents a Ritual Studies research design, developed in projects and programs at the Tilburg research group Ritual in Society. This research design describes the applied or planned research process, its various stages and steps, and perspectives when it comes to theory and method(s). Several ‘best practices’ will illustrate the various stages of the research design, followed by an overview of specific characteristics in historiographic perspective, in reference to a series of research programs and projects.
