Qualitative Research Network
Call for Proposals 2019
Individual or collaborative Research Presentations are invited for the Qualitative Research Network (QRN) to be held Wednesday, March 13,from 1:30 – 5:00 at the 2019 Conference on College Composition and Communication in Pittsburgh, PA.
The Qualitative Research Network, which occurs annually at the CCCC, is offered for both new and experienced qualitative researchers. TheQRN provides mentoring and support to qualitative researchers at all levels of experience and working in diverse areas of study within the college composition and communication community. As a pre-conference research network, the QRN is open to everyone, including those who are already presenting at the conference in other venues.
Keynote Presentation: The initial hour of the workshop will feature Dr. Pamela Takayoshi, Professor of English at Kent State University. Professor Takayoshi researches the ways people use writing in academic and non-academic contexts to make meaning in their lives, with a particular interest in research methodologies, the digital mediation of written communication, and feminist epistemologies. She is the co-editor of four collections of innovative research, including Literacy in Practice: Writing in Public, Private, and Working Lives (with Patrick Thomas), and articles which have appeared in College Composition and Communication, Computers and Composition, Research in the Teaching of English, and numerous edited collections.
Research Roundtables: The final two and a half hours of the workshop feature research roundtables where novice and experienced researchers present work-in-progress for feedback and discussion. Experienced qualitative researchers offer suggestions and facilitate discussion. Each presenter has 20-30 minutes for both presentation and discussion of their work-in-progress. Presenters at the research roundtables may focus on specific concerns and/or broader issues related to qualitative research.
Digital QRN: In order to make the QRN more open and available to scholars who cannot attend the conference this year, the QRN will also provide research roundtables through a digital platform for sharing work-in-progress. Prospective presenters should indicate on their proposal submission if they will be attending the conference or would prefer to be considered for the Digital QRN.
Proposal Information: Please submit via the linked Google form below a brief description (approximately 500 words) of your research proposal by 11:59 pm EST on November 15, 2018.
We encourage submissions from those at any stage of the research process (e.g., planning, data collecting, data analyzing, publishing).
Please be sure that your proposal includes a brief overview of the research project, the stage of its development, and the questions/issues you wish to discuss with other researchers. Descriptions need not be exhaustive. We ask that you provide a general overview of your study as well as a statement about the kinds of feedback you would like to receive.
