2022 Conference Keynote

Co-responsible Relational Research Practice
Norma RA Romm

The concept of relational responsibility as applied to research practice is evocative of an approach to “knowing” where joint responsibility is expected to be taken for the potential effects in/on our social and ecological worlds of any theorizing or meaning-making in which we together engage. The concept encourages those involved in the relational web (including professional researchers situated in academia alongside lay practitioners researching social and ecological existence) to appreciate our involvement in the becoming of the worlds being “researched”. Relational co-responsibility means that as part of the knowing process we do not shy from taking some responsibility for: the chosen  research agendas (and the likely consequences of focusing on specific issues and involving participants and stakeholders accordingly in the discussion); the ways of co-generating and presenting research “insights” (which also will not be neutral in consequence); and the ways of inputting into wider social discourses (in academia and beyond) so as to avoid further marginalizing those – including mother nature – who have been historically marginalized (e.g., through processes of colonization). The paper will draw attention to how the (relational) onto-epistemologies and attendant axiologies as propounded by Indigenous scholars and sages from various colonized geographical areas, as well as the relational ideas formulated by non-Indigenous scholars urging for “the relational turn” in certain research circles, offer implications for co-responsible relational research practice. Examples (some from my own work and some from others’ work) will be offered of how indeed this can be instantiated in research practice.

Transformative Qualitatively Driven Mixed Methods: For a Change
Donna M Mertens
The secret to conducting research “for a change” lies in having clarity about the assumptions that lead us to methodological choices. The assumptions of the transformative framework ask researchers to ask: What do I consider to be ethical research? How can I design my research so that it addresses the ethical assumption that research needs to support an increase in social, economic, and environmental justice? And, how do I make visible versions of reality that sustain oppression and those that lead to transformative change? Transformative qualitatively driven mixed methods designs will be explored as one pathway towards meeting these challenges.

Standing Vigil While Weary/Wary: Ethical Inquiry Enacted for Material Change
Aaron K. Kuntz

I begin this presentation by considering an entangled affect of weary/wary that seems to extend from our contemporary moment—one that draws from multiple material processes and often generates a type of exhaustive paralysis that is relentless in its force. Yet, the weary/wary tangle is never definite, never fully exhausted, and so I next turn to practices of standing vigil as a means to productively engage this indeterminacy. I thus offer an explication of inquiry as a resistive process through which alternatives to the status quo are both necessary and inevitable, yet never exhausted or exhaustible. Still, no practices are inherently revolutionary or inevitably challenge the governing status quo. Thus, I conclude by advocating for an inquiry orientation that stems from relational materialism and is bound by a determination to discernmap, and short-circuit the exploitative relations that govern our shared world such that we might create new ways of living, oriented by an immanent ethical position on material change.

The Heart of The Qualitative Report
Ron Chenail, Sally St. George, Dan Wulff, and Adam Rosenthal

It may seem odd to think about an academic journal or scholarly conference having a heart, but we think a bit differently about The Qualitative Report (TQR). Since 1990, we have approached TQR as a living, breathing community made up of people - researchers, research participants, authors, readers, editors, reviewers, presenters, and conference goers from around the world who think qualitative research can make a difference. Reflecting on this gathering of qualitative researchers, we wonder with all the available journal and conference options, why do authors choose TQR for their papers, why do people decide to submit their abstracts to our conference, why do thousands of authors download TQR articles every day, why do our reviewers review dozens of papers each year, why do we as editors spend countless hours working with authors and their papers, and why do we continue to keep the community the vibrant society it is? At its heart, we think TQR’s greater purpose is about making meaningful human connections; that is our “why.” That is why we exist and persist. Please join us in this interactive session as we explore these “why” questions in our efforts to better understand our purpose so we can improve meeting the human needs at the heart of the TQR community.

Introduction to ATLAS.ti 22: Tools for Digging into your Qualitative Data

Hosted by: Neringa Kalpokas and Ivana Radivojevic

ATLAS.ti is a powerful computer-assisted qualitative data analysis software (CAQDAS) that facilitates the analysis of unstructured and semi-structured data in any discipline. This workshop will present a global overview of ATLAS.ti 22 Win/Mac and Web, including the fundamental procedures related to creating a project, segmenting the data, coding, analysis, and obtaining results. The objective of this session is to provide a practical introduction of ATLAS.ti so that participants will know how to use the software in their own research projects, across any discipline and qualitative methodology. This session will show each step of creating a project, organising and importing various types of data (including text, image, audio, video, survey data, bibliographic references, Evernote data, Twitter data, and geo-data), carrying out coding and writing memos, creating semantic networks, using the advanced analysis tools, and exporting reports of results. The diverse features of ATLAS.ti can help you to arrange, reassemble, and manage your material in creative yet systematic ways. You can use ATLAS.ti for your qualitative study, literature review, or mixed methods research. Students use the software to complete their theses and dissertations. Researchers conduct their analyses and obtain rigorous results to publish in journals with the help of ATLAS.ti. Professionals take advantage of the software to carry out private research, evaluate programmes and analyse market trends. By attending this workshop on ATLAS.ti 22, each person will leave with a global understanding of how the software works and in what ways they can take advantage of this tool to dig deeper into their qualitative data. 

Recording coming soon. 

Speed up the Publishing Process with Citavi and NVivo
Hosted by: Stacy Penna

In this workshop we’ll review the current trends in qualitative research publications and demonstrate how using Citavi and NVivo together can help you publish faster.

Together Citavi and NVivo can assist you with your writing process to speed up publishing in the following ways:

  • Analyze your literature review to find your key themes
  • Organize your writing by planning tasks, outlining and taking notes
  • Write up your research in a more efficient way
  • Publish your paper with formatted citations and visualizations
