The special issue of Qualitative Sociology Review is now available online, with all keynote speakers’ contributions.
We are very happy to announce that Qualitative Sociology Review will publish keynote speeches from the conference in a special issue in April, 2013. Texts from Malin Åkerström, Paul Atkinson, Margarethe Kusenbach, Donileen Loseke, Thomas Luckmann and David Silverman will be included.
We thank all participants for a wonderful conference! According to the reponses we have got, the methodological discussions and presentations were fruitful and inspiring during these two days, and we enjoyed each others company. To refresh your memory, please take a look at some photos.
Now we look forward to new sessions and speeches in Turin, August 2013!
Please get in touch with us or the Research Network 20 if you have suggestions on how to improve our events. These conferences depend on initiatives and critique from members of the scientific community. Should we have workshops instead of sessions? More interviews “on stage”, like the one we had with Jaber F. Gubrium? All opinions and thoughts are welcome!
