Early Career Workshop (ECW)
Karin Frey, University of Washington, USA
David Williamson Shaffer, University of Wisconsin-Madison, USA
The purpose of the ICQE Early Career Workshop is to provide a high quality learning and networking opportunity for early career researchers doing work related to quantitative ethnography. Within the workshop, participants will share their research with their peers and an international panel of faculty serving as mentors. Participants will engage in collaborative inquiry and scholarly discourse to improve their research and to build a career as a scholar using quantitative ethnography to advance their understanding of the field. The Early Career Workshop is open to scholars within 5 years of completing their PhD. Early Career Scholars will be chosen through a competitive application process for participation.
Objectives and Design
The workshop aims at supporting participants in:
- Defining innovative and productive programs of research that lead toward an impactful record of inquiry;
- Focusing learning on high-yield professional activities such as grant-writing, peer editing, and building a publishing trajectory;
- Supporting strong data analysis skills and evidence-based arguments in their research projects;
- Addressing issues of using cutting-edge methods in scholarship; and
- Expanding the professional networks of workshop participants through interactions with other early career scholars, mentors, and journal editors
The ECW is open to scholars within 5 years since completing their PhD at the time of application submission. Scholars with prior involvement in quantitative ethnographic research are encouraged to apply, but all applications will be considered. Participation is open to early career researchers in universities, non-profit organizations, museums, and other learning-oriented organizations.
