Conference Theme

Questions such as “Who we research, what we research, how we research, where we research, when we research, why we research, and even who are ‘we’?” have never been more critical for qualitative researchers to consider. The politics of the choices we make beyond basic methodological decisions are more meaningful today than ever before. Are we questioning the questions we use to organize what we do as researchers? Do we only justify our studies from gaps we construct from previous published research or can we justify the needs for our research outside the library? What motivates us to research? What hinders our researching efforts? How do we overcome barriers, biases, bullying, and bigotry?
