Day Three of the International Congress of Qualitative Inquiry

Day Three, one day late, was another great day at QI2006, though I don't have lots of notes to share.  My first session in the morning was Qualitative Evaluation and Adolescence.  This panel's papers centered on education and health issues.  The papers were interesting though not particularly useful for my research.

The second panel A Need to Know:  The Clandestine History of a CIA Family - Honoring the Work of Harold Lloyd (Bud) Goodall Jr. included papers from a group of great scholars.  Their insights into the work and themselves was profound.  I ended up with a list of phrases and terms used in their autoethnographic pieces that will be rolling around in my head for quite a while.

I had lunch with a group of internet scholars - Caroline Haythornthwaite, Radhika Gajjala, Yahui Zhang, Qi Tang, and Andre' Brock Jr. Good conversation was it always when internet researchers gather with food.  The group, minus Caroline, decided to attend the next two sessions together.  We headed off to the Internet Research Ethics panel but found no one there to present.  So we sat outside on the Illini Union deck and talked about research and blogs in particular.

The last panel of the day was Online Ethnography.  The presenters gave us glimpses into both ongoing and in-development research.  I think this panel is most valuable for the new people that I met and hopefully will be trading emails with in the future.

My final event before I headed out in the car, on my multi-day trip to Colorado, was attending the International Association of Qualitative Inquiry (IAQI) meeting.  IAQI is a new organization making the first moves to formalizing their structure.  If you are interested in Qualitative Research I suggest you visit their website and sign up for the listserv, which makes you a member of the organization.
