The theme of the 2016 Congress is “Qualitative Inquiry in Neoliberal Times”. Critical qualitative research is under assault. Qualitative scholars struggle to obtain tenure, their research is often underfunded, the journals they publish in are given low impact scores. Scholars around the world, inside and outside the academy, struggle against the regulatory practices of neoliberalism.

ICQI is holding its next National Conference on May 20-23, 2015 at the University of Illinois at Urbana-Champaign. The theme of this year’s congress is “Constructing a New Critical Qualitative Inquiry."

Routledge Education is excited to join the celebration at ICQI, so be sure to stop by our booth to see all our key and new titles. We’re also offering 20% off all titles on display and free global shipping!

We look forward to seeing you in Urbana-Champaign!
