Greetings Elves! So good to be back in touch after a long hiatus.  Some
of you I know, most I do not.  But let me invite you to Athens for a
fabulous conference. It's somewhat like the forum but with lots of
Southern hospitality, and that can be good in January! Alas, the next
two years I will not be in town--I'll be at a low-residency MFA program
in poetry in New Hampshire.  But I fell in love with this conference
before I started at UGA and I still love  it 3 years later.  And the
keynotes rock.

CALL FOR PROPOSALS: DEADLINE EXTENDED TO MAY 18, 2005



19th Annual QUIG Conference on Interdisciplinary Qualitative Studies

January 6-8 2006

University of Georgia, Athens, Georgia

Keynote Speakers:

Norman Denzin, University of Illinois, Urbana-Champaign

Patti Lather, Ohio State University

Angela Valenzuela, University of Texas at Austin

Conference theme: Local knowledge, global contexts: Mapping the terrain
of qualitative research in the 21st Century

Technological innovations, the development of multinational corporate
structures, and growth in transnational population flows have resulted
in globally shifting political, economic, and social landscapes.
Qualitative researchers have access to new methods of generating,
analyzing and representing data, along with expanded opportunities for
forming different kinds of research alliances with both other
researchers and participants in studies. Yet, along with these
opportunities come challenges. Political agendas impact the ways in
which knowledge is produced, what research is valued, and how and what
research findings are disseminated. With the promise of technology, come
new ethical dilemmas. Transnational population flows allow for new
spaces for understanding of difference, as well as possibilities for
shifting discourses of intolerance.
