If you're planning to go to the 2012 Conference on College Composition and Communication, consider checking out the Qualitative Research Network:
QRN 2012 will be held Wednesday, March 21 from 1:30 to 5:00 at the 2012 Conference on College Composition and Communication in St. Louis, Missouri.
The QRN provides mentoring and support to qualitative researchers at all levels of experience and working in diverse areas of study within the college composition and communication community. As a pre-conference research network, the QRN is open to everyone, including those who are already presenting at the conference in other venues.
The first hour of QRN 2012 will feature a keynote address by Paul Prior titled “Refining theory and methods through qualitative research: Tales from the field." The rest of the workshop will feature research roundtables where novice and experienced researchers will have twenty to thirty minutes to present their work-in-progress for feedback and discussion. Experienced qualitative researchers will be on hand at each table to offer suggestions and facilitate discussion.
In the CFP, they say:
We encourage submissions from those at any stage of the research process (e.g., planning,
data collecting, data analyzing, publishing).
Please send via email a brief description (approximately 500 words) of your research proposal by October 11 to both Gwen Gorzelsky (email@example.com) and Kevin Roozen (firstname.lastname@example.org), Co-Chairs, Qualitative Research Network.
