May 18-21, 2011
The Seventh International Congress of Qualitative Inquiry will take place at the University of Illinois, Urbana-Champaign from May 17-21, 2011. The theme of the 2011 Congress is "Qualitative Inquiry and the Politics of Advocacy." Increasingly in these troubling political times qualitative researchers are called upon to make their work relevant. They are encouraged to pursue social justice agendas, to be human rights advocates, to do work that honors the core values of human dignity, and freedom from fear and violence. Many oppose any political agenda, calling for non-activist qualitative research, let the chips fall where they will.
They are reluctant to put their faith in any project that seeks to transform the nature of human social life. They advocate non-partisan inquiry. They call for objectivity. They question partisanship, and have reservations about any activist role of research in relation to policymaking or practice. We invite your submission of paper, poster and session proposals. Submissions will be accepted online only from October 1 until December 1 2010. Conference and workshop registration will begin December 1, 2010.
