Hosted by Dr. Thomas Barone, the three day conference will serve as a venue for scholars from diverse disciplines and professional fields to engage in an exchange of ideas surrounding several innovative qualitative inquiry approaches. The conference will afford opportunities for professors and graduate students in a variety of fields to attend keynote addresses by four prominent scholars; to attend half-day, "hands-on" workshops on various dimensions of research conducted by other leaders in their respective fields; and to present papers and lead conversations in relatively intimate settings regarding these developing forms of research.
