Day Two of the International Congress of Qualitative Inquiry

My first session this morning was called Performing Methodologies [and/or/is/of/in/...] Performing Cultures. Ronald J. Pelias, Southern Illinois University-Carbondale, runs a program that fascinates me.  In this panel three of his students presented autoethnographic performance pieces that ranged from a look at archival research and the researcher as artifact to whiteness and straightness using teeth as a metaphor.  Wonderful fascinating performance "art" pieces grounded in academic research...gotta love it.

I went to two more panels Computer Assisted Research, Irks, and Social Policy and Post colonial Blogosphere:  Examining Digital Diasporas.  I could give you a lot of notes from all the papers but I would rather talk about the most interesting paper of the day.

Research in New Media:  Ethical Considerations for Removed Subjects, Jen Almjeld and Sergey Rybas, Bowling Green State University.

Their paper looks at the ethical issues surrounding what they call "dead" documents.  What they refer to as "dead" are sites that have become stable and are no longer active.  They stated that "dead" is a problematic word, and I agree.  Mostly what I think they mean are sites that have become archival and have not been updated.  Their presentation acknowledged the complexities of public vs. private, asked when consent is really needed, and looked at subject autonomy of "removed subjects."  I sincerely hope they work out the kinks and submit this paper for publication.

I had lunch with Caroline Haythornthwaite and spent a couple of hours having great academic conversation...gotta love that too.

I agree with you about that paper - sounds interesting (I have contacted Jen to get a copy).
