Workshop Description 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:
ECW sessions will occur before the conference on Saturday, October 19 and after the conference on Tuesday, October 22. First, participants will meet before the conference to present their research projects and engage in discussions with other members on specific aspects of their work. On the last day of the conference, participants will meet again to engage with common issues and themes identified during the conference, including theoretical models, research design and questions, pedagogy and technology, data collection, methods of analysis, etc. and how these issues may or may not relate to their work. During both days of the consortium, participants will receive support from expert mentors to engage in further inquiry and discussion.
Who Should Apply
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.
