Wilfrid Laurier University, Brantford [campus map]
Carnegie Building, 73 George Street [google map]
Brantford, Ontario, Canada
May 12 to 14, 2011

Abstract Submission Deadline: Tuesday, March 1, 2011

The goal of the 2011 Qualitative Analysis Conference is to explore methodological, theoretical and substantive issues in qualitative research.  This year’s conference aims to examine and celebrate the utility of qualitative inquiry while also highlighting the interdisciplinary nature of qualitative research.  Qualitative methodology continues to advance and be employed in new ways, and in disciplines more traditionally accustomed to quantitative analysis.  With the increasing use of qualitative methodology, and its application in new empirical settings and theoretical landscapes, what methodological challenges and advances are being faced by researchers and what gains are being achieved?
To this end, our conference welcomes theoretical, empirical, and methodological papers from both novice and veteran scholars, as they address the following topics:
  • Debating Standards in Qualitative Research
  • The Use of Technology in Qualitative Research
  • Emotionality and Emotional Labour in the Field
  • Reflexivity and Theory in Qualitative Inquiry
  • Ethical Regulations and Ethical Boundaries
  • Team-Based Qualitative Research
If your paper does not fit into these categories, but is related to interpretivist scholarship, or ethnographic, qualitative research in some way, we still very much encourage you to send in an abstract.  With enough submissions on one area, we can develop new themes as appropriate.

Keynote Address: We are pleased to announce that Peter and Patti Adler, recent recipients of the SSSI's George Herbert Mead Award for Lifetime Achievement, will be presenting the keynote address.

Featured Speakers: We are pleased to announce that Adele Clarke, Andrea Doucet, Christine Hine, and Robert Prus will be attending the conference as featured speakers.

Special Issue of Qualitative Sociology Review will be devoted to publishing some of the best papers presented at the conference.  More details to follow.

Journal Editors: Krzysztof Konecki (Qualitative Sociology Review), Larry Nichols (The American Sociologist), Brian Donovan (The Sociological Quarterly), Jeff Ferrell (Crime, Media, Culture), and Adele Clarke (BioSocieties) will be representing their respective journals at the conference.

Panel on Funding Qualitative Research: Alan Pepé (SSHRC Program Officer), Michael Atkinson (SSHRC award & grant recipient & reviewer), Ivy Bourgeault (CIHR - Institute of Health Services & Policy Research, CIHR Chair in Health Human Resource Policy), Margaret Denton (Chair, CIHR - Institute on Aging & grant recipient), and Mark Pogrebin (International and NIJ funding experience).
