Conference on the Journal as a Form of Academic Interaction

From the 8th - 10th January, teachers at the Department of Sociology at the Faculty of Social Sciences Olga Savinskaya and Elizaveta Polukhina, and HSE graduate Anastasia Poilova took part in the The Qualitative Report Sixth Annual Conference organised by the international peer-reviewed journal Qualitative Report. 

This is the annual conference of the international interdisciplinary journal which specialises in qualitative research and takes place in Florida at Nova Southeastern University.

The conference is interdisciplinary in nature as it brings together social scientists from many fields - sociologists, anthropologists, psychologists, linguists, social workers, etc, - but on the other hand it is narrow because it focusses on the methodology of qualitative research and empirical works in this tradition. At the conference there was much discussion about the major trends changing methodology (digitalisation, ‘drawing out’ methods, narrativisation, visual and art methods, developing the strategies of well-founded theories, etc.)

A whole evening was devoted to the changes that have taken place over the 25 years the journal has been functioning. During a meeting of the editors and the editorial board, the director Ronald J.Chenail, talked about the new platform the journal is expecting and about changes in the way they work with reviewed texts.

The conference was packed with sessions where the main lecturers were specialists in qualitative methodology. The most interesting speaker was Valerie Janesick who talked about cognitive possibilities of qualitative methods and applying metaphors from yoga practices to them. Next year the organisers plan to have a conference about the future of qualitative research.
