Qualitative Analysis Conference: "Creating, Negotiating, and Transcending Social Boundaries in Everyday Life" - New Brunswick, Canada
May 16-18, 2018
Boundaries are key concepts in the social science tool-kit. They are social, physical, temporal, spatial, virtual and relational; they provide a space for qualitative researchers to examine the everyday world, using traditional concepts and practices grounded in the very history of qualitative research. At the same time, qualitative research and researchers have pushed and transcended methodological and conceptual boundaries, exploring new and emerging spaces, deepening our understandings of a social world where boundaries are increasingly varied shades of grey. The theme of this year's conference offers an opportunity to explore the meanings of social boundaries: how they change, mutate, shift, and are transgressed/ing and reconstituted/ing.
2018 Worldwide Conference on Qualitative Research: Stay Curious - Valencia, Spain
May 16-18, 2018
Curiosity is the attribute that unites qualitative researchers the world over. Curiosity about people and their lives, about society at large and individual communities, but also a hunger for the latest new thinking, whether it be from academia, the business world, or even popular culture.

Curiosity is what gets us out of bed in the morning and carries us through those long working hours. But we need to invest in it, to continually fuel it, in order to keep our edge. This conference is about coming together to inspire and stimulate...to ensure we "Stay Curious."

QRCA and AQR are delighted to present the 9th Biennial Conference on Qualitative Research. We will meet in the fabulous city of Valencia, Spain, from Wednesday, May 16 through Friday, May 18, 2018, at the Westin Hotel Valencia.

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 logics—or completely irrational. As borders and boundaries—fashioned by human beings—they 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.
