28th Annual Qualitative Analysis Conference (May 2011, Brantford Ontario)

Deadline for submissions: 24 September 2010.
Conference website: www.qualitatives.ca.

This is a Call for Papers for the 28th Annual Qualitative Analysis Conference being held this year at Wilfrid Laurier University’s Brantford campus in Brantford, Ontario, Canada from May 12 to 14, 2011.  WLU Brantford was the site of the 2010 Qualitatives.  We were very happy with how well things turned out this past year, and hope that you’ll attend and help make the 2011 Qualitatives just as intellectually stimulating and enjoyable.  The theme of this year’s conference is “Contemporary Issues in Qualitative Research.”

We are particularly interested in methodological, theoretical, and empirical papers from both novice and veteran scholars addressing this theme and the following sub-themes:

  • 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

Should your paper not fit directly into these categories, but is interpretivist and qualitative in nature, please consider submitting an abstract.

Featured Speaker: We are excited to announce that Adele Clarke will be joining us as a Featured Speaker.

A submission deadline of Friday, September 24, 2010 has been set for this first Call for Papers.

Conference website: www.qualitatives.caAbstracts can be submitted online at: www.qualitatives.ca/submit-abstract.
