European Congress of Qualitative Inquiry 2019
Wednesday 13 February – Friday 15 February
Pre-conference workshops: Tuesday 12 February
Conference theme: ‘Qualitative Inquiry as Activism’
The Centre for Creative-Relational Inquiry (CCRI) at the University of Edinburgh looks forward to welcoming qualitative scholars – students, researchers, artists, independent scholars – from across the globe to the 3rd European Congress of Qualitative Inquiry.
CCRI fosters qualitative research that is situated, positioned, context-sensitive, personal, experience-near, and embodied; research that embraces the performative and the aesthetic; research that engages with the political, the social, and the ethical; research that problematizes agency, autonomy, and representation; research that cherishes its relationship with theory, creating concepts as it goes; research that is dialogical and collaborative; and research that is explicit and curious about the inquiry process itself.
Come and join us to extend, deepen, re-frame and challenge these propositions and to bring, create and generate new ones; propositions that are slow and urgent, generous and edgy, open and restless.
Let’s meet in February 2019. Tell others. Bring others. Bring students, fellow students, colleagues. Bring your energies, commitments, imaginations, creativities, and possibilities. Bring coats, hats, gloves, and scarves.
Bring your activism. Your work as activism. Let’s explore what ‘activism’ means, what it looks like, what it can do. You may not see yourself as ‘activist’ nor your work as ‘activism’: please come, please bring that.
