Writing is fundamental to modern societies and of overarching signiﬁcance in all our lives: central to our personal experiences, life chances and social identities. Its complex, multifaceted nature, however, is diﬃcult to pin down and as a result, many research approaches have emerged to help clarify both how writing works and the purposes it is employed to achieve. Research, in fact, has taken philosophical, historical, empirical and critical directions and encompassed a wide range of diﬀerent interpretive and quantitative methods. In this chapter I brieﬂy summarize and evaluate some of these and illustrate a sample study.
