Tenth International Congress of Qualitative Inquiry

Qualitative Inquiry and the Politics of Research”

The International Congress of Qualitative Inquiry (ICQI) will celebrate its 10th anniversary in 2014. The 10th Congress will be built around the changes that have occurred in the field of qualitative inquiry in the decade since the Congress was launched as an alternative site for collaboration and discourse. The 2014 Congress will offer delegates an opportunity to assess the major changes that have taken place over the last decade. What might the Congress, and indeed the broader landscape of qualitative inquiry, look like in another decade? What should our mandate be for the next decade? What have we learned? Where do we go next?

Delegates are invited to submit proposals for panels and sessions that address these and other pressing questions concerning the politics of research (e.g., IRBs, grant funding, publishing, promotion and tenure, life in the corporate university, etc.). Delegates are also invited to address the events surrounding the 10th anniversary of the Congress itself, its history, and its future.

The 2014 Congress will offer scholars the opportunity to explore a decade of change, while foregrounding qualitative inquiry as a shared, global endeavor. Panels, workshops and sessions will take up the politics of research. Delegates will be able to form coalitions,  to engage in debate  on how qualitative research can be used to advance the causes of social justice, while addressing racial, ethnic, gender and environmental disparities in education, welfare and healthcare.

As in previous congresses, sessions will take up such topics as: the politics of evidence, right and left pole epistemologies, the meanings and uses of data, new models of science, new analytics of analysis and representation,  the ethics  of inquiry, public policy discourse, tenure, publishing,  advocacy, partisanship,  decolonizing  inquiry. Contributors are invited to experiment with traditional and new methodologies, with new presentational formats (ethnodrama, performance, poetry, autoethnography, fiction).  Such work will offer guidelines and exemplars concerning advocacy, inquiry and social justice concerns.
