Centre for Qualitative Research’s 2008 Video (Bournemouth University)

I stumbled across this video (ok, a colleague sent me a link to it!) about what seems to have been a very interesting qualitative conference last year at Bournemouth University. If a picture is worth a thousand words, then perhaps this video may make an even more powerful statement for what this was about.

"Day Dreams, Night Games" from Kip Jones on Vimeo.

I wonder when the call for papers and information for the 2010 conference will be online, and I am interested to see how interdisciplinary (cf. my life and work) this conference may be. Perhaps I should put it on my proposed list for next year . . .

    Your video about making the video (which I just watched and experienced) was very helpful, and seems to be a true teachable (and reflective practice) moment. Have you found this useful for students and / or colleagues, as well as moving your own thinking along?

    I have personally shied away from (ok, hidden myself from) video work, and this background explanation is very helpful for understanding the “why,” which is some place I often get stuck at the beginning of new projects and technologies.


  2. I was there. It was a very interesting conference. They had great plenary speakers including Kathy Charmaz and Johnny Saldana. Ideal for those interested in combining the arts, humanities and social scientists. Attended a very interesting presentation of a woman who created a quilt of her respondents’ art responses as a supplement to her PhD dissertation.

    Thank you for the feedback, Silvana.

    In some ways, this reminds me of QI2009 which we just attended (nearly finished with your book now, BTW), and I am looking for more international conferences outside the US, as I find the diversity and opportunities for learning to be increased. My life and interests are interdisciplinary, and I have stopped attending some conferences that do not seem to openly value this perspective. No point in attending where I or my perspectives are not valued.

    Additionally, as I am still a bit away from formalizing my dissertation (or thesis, as I am studying in the UK), now seems to be the best time to be exposed to alternate research paradigms–they may (and already have) spark new ways of thinking that can influence my research.
