The Fourth International Congress of Qualitative Inquiry will take place at the University of Illinois at Urbana-Champaign from May 14-17, 2008. The theme of the Congress, building on previous Congresses, is “Ethics, Evidence and Social Justice.” The Fourth Congress will offer the international community of qualitative research scholars the opportunity to engage in debate on ethical, epistemological, methodological and social justice issues. In these changing times, there are attempts to impose uniform bio-medical ethical standards on qualitative research. For more info, visit the International Center for Qualitative Inquiry site.
