Call for Abstracts
The 5th Forum of Critical Chinese Qualitative Research
Special Interest Group in
The 16th International Congress on Qualitative Inquiry
University of Illinois at Urbana-Champaign
May 20-23, 2020
The Forum invites interested practitioners to advance critical qualitative research in China Studies. It provides a platform for qualitative practitioners at all stages of their careers to present their work, receive feedback, and bring their work into fruition. Collectively, the Forum will contribute to the development of critical qualitative research locally and globally.
Echoing the ICQI’s thematic focus, “Qualitative Inquiry in Repressive Times,” the Forum will use the following topics to organize its 5th pre-conference:
- On the doing of critical Chinese qualitative research:
- How are local and/or global repressive regimes defined and regulated?
- How are local/global repressive regimes manifested?
- How do qualitative practitioners in China Studies position themselves in relation to repressive regimes?
- How do we advance critical qualitative research in China Studies in the context of local/global repressive regimes?
- How do we contribute to the globalization of qualitative research in the context of local/global repressive regimes?
- On the teaching and learning of critical Chinese qualitative research:
- How do we carve out a pedagogical space in the context of local/global repressive regimes?
- What are resources that support the teaching/learning of critical Chinese qualitative research?
- How do we make the teaching and learning of critical Chinese qualitative research sustainable?
Submissions should include both an English (150-word) and Chinese (300-word) abstract. The actual paper can be in English or Chinese. Authors of papers accepted for presentation at the Forum will be notified a few weeks after the submission deadline.
Presentation and discussion at the Forum can be in English or Chinese. Participants will present their research, provide critique, and discuss strategies for disseminating results.
Participants are encouraged to submit their full papers by early April 2020. The Forum organizers are available to provide peer reviews on well-developed papers, with the understanding that the Forum organizers will retain the first right of refusal for the paper’s ultimate publication.
