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.

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 conference will be held on February 26-27, 2018 at the Flamingo Hotel in Las Vegas, Nevada with a special conference room rate of $59 per night (plus tax & fees).
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. There is no additional cost for participation at pre-conference workshops. Also, a graduate-student colloquium will be held on Monday afternoon with a special emphasis on advancing graduate student scholarship. Visit the website for details at www.EQRC.net

P.S.: EQRC this year will be held at the same hotel location and dates as the 21st Annual American Association of Behavioral and Social Sciences (AABSS) conference and the 2nd Annual Conference on Academic Research in Education (CARE). 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. AABSS is sponsored by the UNLV College of Liberal Arts and EQRC is sponsored by the UNLV College of Education.
