International Congress of Qualitative Inquiry - University of Illinois, Urbana-Champaign (USA)
May 17-20, 2017
The theme of the 2017 Congress is "Qualitative Inquiry in the Public Sphere". Critical qualitative research is under assault. These are troubled times. The global right is on the move. It is setting the agenda for public discourse on the social good. In so doing it is narrowing the spaces for civic discourse. A rein of fear is on the air. The 13th International Congress offers scholars the opportunity to resist this discourse, to experiment with different ways of being moral, political and ethical in the public sphere, to foreground, interrogate and invent new interpretive practices, to engage in a politics of advocacy, pro and con, to form coalitions, to experiment with new ways of resisting the pressures of neoliberalism. The Congress will be an arena for advancing the causes of social justice, while addressing racial, ethnic, gender and environmental disparities in education, welfare and healthcare.

Mixed Methods International Reseach Association regional conference - Pretoria, South Africa
August 30-September 1, 2017
Applying mixed methods to move disciplines forward: The research landscape is actively changing, which means that researchers need to be adaptable to address the issues that they are faced with. Within this changing environment a one size fits all approach is often not the best option to address the various research issues that form part of a global community. To this end, researchers need to be adept in using a variety of research designs and methodologies to ensure that issues are addressed for the advancement of society. That said, mixed methods research challenges researchers to be creative in their academic work. This will be the first research design and methodology conference in mixed methods offered in South Africa.

Contemporary Ethnography Across the Disciplines Hui - Santiago, Chile
November 20-23, 2018
Borders and boundaries: Plurality, permeability and plasticity. As the theme for the 2018 CEAD Hui, Borders and boundaries is both a symbolic and a material concept for ethnographic scholars. In a world fraught with mistrust, downgrading, and literally dehumanizing of the Other/other, the relationships of groups of people to borders keeping others out, and boundaries keeping our selves within seem no longer to be simply theoretical constructs, but rather have become real-time, politicized precursors and effects of ignorance. This ignorance might be deliberate or it may be structural; it may stem from paranoia, fear, lack of social intercourse: at any rate, the Southern Hemisphere, always aware of a globalized worldscape, is affected by worldviews that call for construction of concretized, fabricated, and real borders and boundaries. These "walls" can be real or imagined; they may be tangible, esoteric, ephemeral, and a combination of those material types; they may be multiple or singular, hurtful and unconscious and deliberate. They may be semi-, quasi-, or non-permeable. They may be borders and/or boundaries that are understood or incomprehensible. They may be based on some sorts of logicsor completely irrational. As borders and boundariesfashioned by human beingsthey are, of course, socially constructed, contextually sited and specific, and able to be, like the plasticity of brains, re-fashioned, deconstructed, and re-made into more or less humane interactions with other humans and species.
The conference theme Borders and boundaries, Plurality, permeability and plasticity, is, of course (as all conference themes are) suggestive: delegates to the CEAD 2018 in Santiago, Chile are invited to explore, play with, tease out, the subtleties, performance spaces, and evocative work that this thematic implies.
