Qualitative Research SIG – AERA

The Qualitative Research Special Interest Group, QRSIG, established in 1987, was created to provide a space within AERA for the discussion of philosophical, ethical, and methodological issues in Qualitative Research as well as to seek cutting edge approaches to qualitative research methods.  The QRSIG strives to legitimize all non traditional forms of research, and to support other SIG’s and Divisions with similar interests and goals, including an emphasis on ways that qualitative research may contribute to reducing inequality and injustice in schools and society.

Visit the QRSIG Webpage for more information and to listen to podcasts related to qualitative research in and beyond education.

New Journal: Intersections

https://wordpress.com/post/csfeonline.org/466  (Posted on Council for Social Foundations of Education Blog)
Call for Submissions for Spring 2018 Issue
Deadline: February 1, 2018
Sponsored by the University of New Mexico’s Department of Language, Literacy, and Sociocultural Studies, Intersections: Critical Issues in Education is an online, peer-reviewed, open access academic journal. We seek to deepen understanding of how race, class, gender, sexuality, exceptionalities, power, well-being, and other subjectivities play out in educational settings as a means of advancing social justice for all people. Intersections serves as a forum for diverse voices and perspectives reflecting a variety of disciplines, focusing on work that interrogates, disrupts, and challenges oppression. We welcome a range of materials, including academic papers, personal perspectives, and other innovative forms of scholarship that may speak to an audience beyond academia.
We seek original creative or scholarly submissions that examine critical issues in education, including but not limited to schooling and society, language diversity, literacy and culture, curriculum and practice, subjectivities/identities, policy and reform, spirituality, health and well-being, multimedia and digital technologies, globalization, health, gender, critical literacy, race, power, and (dis) ability studies. We welcome submissions in a variety of formats, from empirical articles and position papers to memoirs and reviews of literature; essays; academic commentaries; interviews; book and media reviews. Submissions in other genres are also encouraged, including well-crafted poetry, artistic works, fiction, documentary film or short film, video of an event with scholarly commentary, scholarly conversations (print, audio, performance), and more. For more information, contact us at intersections@unm.edu or via


Ethnographic and Qualitative Research Conference Call

Please consider submitting a proposal for a paper presentation at the 30th Annual Ethnographic & Qualitative Research Conference (EQRC).  EQRC is sponsored this year by the University of Nevada Las Vegas (UNLV) College of Education.

The deadline for submitting a proposal is November 19th and papers will undergo juried review on a rolling basis, with prompt notifications of acceptance/rejection so that presenters can make early and economical travel arrangements.  All presented papers are eligible for submission to the Journal of Ethnographic & Qualitative Research (www.jeqr.org) and all submitted papers will be peer-reviewed for potential publication.

Sunday afternoon pre-conference workshops are offered regarding ethnographic-based action research and increasing publications in peer-reviewed journals.

Although AABSS and CARE are independent of EQRC, if you desire to present multiple papers, then you may present one at EQRC and another at AABSS and/or CARE for the same registration fee. Please note that papers presented at AABSS must involve behavioral or social science and papers presented at CARE must be germane to education. See www.AABSS.net for details regarding the AABSS conference and www.CARE-Conference.net for details regarding the CARE conference.

The Trials of Alice Goffman (NYTimes)

“Goffman became a proxy for old and unsettled arguments about ethnography that extended far beyond her own particular case. What is the continuing role of the qualitative in an era devoted to data? When the politics of representation have become so fraught, who gets to write about whom?”

Gideon Lewis-Krause, “The Trials of Alice Goffman,” New York Times Magazine, January 12, 2016


Southwestern Anthropological Association Call for Proposals

SWAA LOGO FINALHappy New Year!  It’s time to submit your abstract to the 87th Annual Southwestern Anthropological Association Conference.  We invite the submission of your paper, poster  film and/or session abstracts until February 15, 2016. The theme for the 2016 Conference is Sustainable Humanity:  Learning from the Past and Planning for the Future.  Come and share your work on April 22 and 23, 2016 at Humphreys Half Moon Bay Inn and Suites on Shelter Island in San Diego, California.  The venue will provide us with a beautiful, tropical ambiance in which we can present, discuss, explore and learn from colleagues and friends.

Please note that SWAA has a shiny new website, where you can find all of our conference information.  Please go to http://www.swaa-anthro.org to read the CFP, register, submit an abstract and get contact information for making your hotel reservation.  To get the conference hotel rate, just say that you are a SWAA participant when you call the hotel.

We are honored to have distinguished anthropologist, Dr. Laura Nader, as our Banquet Speaker for the conference.  She will be speaking to us about her latest book, “What the Rest Think of the West,” in which she allows us to see ourselves through the eyes of Eastern travelers’ over the millennia.   As Nicholas Dirks says about the book, “ “To see ourselves as others see us” isn’t just a famous line from Robert Burns; it’s an urgent requirement for the global twenty-first century.”  Frame shifting from ethnocentric Western perspectives is an essential part of moving to a more sustainable future locally, nationally and globally.

Read about Dr. Nader and hear brief excerpts from an interview done by the Regional Oral History Office at Berkeley:  Laura Nader:  A Life of Teaching, Investigation, Scholarship and Scope by going to the ROH website:


I am attaching a flyer that you can share with colleagues and students.  Please feel free to post or forward the flyer and/or information about the conference to others who might be interested in participating!

All of us at SWAA are eager to hear what work you and your colleagues and students are doing, whether it be in archaeology, biological anthropology, linguistic anthropology or cultural anthropology, applied, public or theoretical anthropology, or some combination of any of the above.  Be you an academic, a working professional, a graduate student or an undergraduate student, your attendance and contributions are essential to a lively dialogue about what anthropology has to contribute to a sustainable future.   See you in April!
