Interdisciplinary Symposium on Qualitative Methodologies

Interdisciplinary Symposium on Qualitative Methodologies



April 15, 2017

The spring 2017 Interdisciplinary Symposium on Qualitative Methodologies provides a space where students, faculty, and other participating researchers can engage in scholarly conversations that will contribute towards understanding diverse qualitative methodologies and their applications. Through our inaugural theme, "The Arts in Qualitative Research: Ways of Knowing and Learning," we emphasize the artistry in qualitative research and aim to create an interdisciplinary research experience that fosters networking, promotes collaboration between disciplines and Colleges, and offers graduate students and more experienced researchers a shared stage to present ideas, discuss research, and start conversations.

The one-day Symposium hosted by The University of South Florida's Student Organization for Qualitative Methodologies (SOQM) and co-hosted by Technology & Second Language Acquisition Research (TESLAR) will include a Plenary Presentation by Dr. Kakali Bhattacharya (Kansas State University) and sessions throughout the day.

We welcome submissions for presentations, panels, and workshops from qualitative researchers representing Education, Communications, Anthropology, Sociology, Women's and Gender Studies, Health, and English, among others. We especially encourage submissions on Arts-Based methods and analysis from various fields of study. We look forward to diverse interpretations of "Arts-Based research," which may include visual-based research, performance, aesthetic/creative writing, etc.

We expect a wide range of creative approaches, ideas, and collaborations including presentations with images, multi-media, performance, fine arts, and other modes of expression.

Please choose the best format for your work and mention this after the proposal text:

  1. 20-minute paper presentation
  2. 45-minute panel discussion (3-4 researchers focused on a shared topic)
  3. 90-minute workshop

Deadline for submitting the 250-word summary symposium proposal(s) is February 17, 2017.

If your proposal is accepted, you will be invited to register as a presenter, with zero registration fee. For general attendance, please see the registration link.
