Call for Proposals
The Society for Qualitative Inquiry in Psychology (SQIP), a Section of Division 5 of the American Psychological Association, is pleased to announce its annual conference that will be held at Fordham University (Lincoln Centre) in Manhattan, on Wednesday and Thursday, 24-25 May 2017.
SQIP, in aiming to develop and disseminate qualitative methods suitable for acquiring knowledge of psychological life (broadly conceived including lived experience, expression, practice, and social conduct), recognises that important contributions are being made across many disciplines. Therefore we invite scholars and researchers in psychology as well as in other social sciences, humanities, and the arts to share their work and engagement with qualitative methods and methodologies. These could include (but are not limited to) methodological advances in qualitative inquiries of all kinds; philosophical issues such as epistemology and ethics; strategies and practices for effective instruction in specific qualitative methods; and empirical progress within all content domains. In pursuit of robust conference dialogue across multiple disciplines, we welcome presentations that address questions of disciplinary identities and differences, or that bring interdisciplinary and transdisciplinary perspectives to bear in qualitative inquiry.
Proposal submissions are invited in three forms:
1. Organised Symposia featuring 3-5 presenters who will address a common theme during a 90-minute session.
2. Individual Papers that we will group into sessions of three papers each.
3. Poster Presentations for our poster session(s), featuring individual and/or group work.
Completed proposal should be submitted as a single, well-organised document in MS Word format and given a document name that includes “2017 SQIP”, the first and last name of the person submitting the proposal, and an abbreviated title (e.g. “2017 SQIP-Full Name-Narrative Study of Microaggression”). On the first page of the proposal, please include the name and contact information (including email addresses) for all participants, including chair and discussant (s), as applicable. For symposia, an overarching title and abstract (not to exceed 300 words), plus complete titles and abstracts (not to exceed 300 words each) for individual presentations must be included. Individual paper proposals and posters can be 300-500 words in length. Paper and poster proposal can include a copy of the completed paper or sample slides, if available.
Submit proposal electronically to SQIPconference@gmail.com with a CC to firstname.lastname@example.org by Wednesday, 10 January 2017.
