33rd Annual

Ethnographic & Qualitative Research Conference (EQRC)

June 14-15, 2021

Virtual Conference

Due to the Covid-19 pandemic, EQRC will be held as a "virtual conference," during June 14-15, 2021.

Both pre-recorded lecture sessions as well as poster sessions will be posted on the conference website in an open-view format.

Call for Papers

Sponsored by the University of Nevada at Las Vegas' (UNLV) College of Education, we invite scholars to participate in the conference by presenting research projects among a broad spectrum of topics. Employment of traditional ethnographic and qualitative research projects provides the common thread for conference papers.

Proposals will be peer-reviewed among three strands: Results of qualitative and ethnographic research studies, qualitative research methods, and pedagogical issues in qualitative research.

Formats include lecture and poster presentations. The lectures will be 15-minute video presentations by authors and posters will be posted via PDF documents (see details HERE). Authors may request respective formats and all presentations (videos/posters) will be posted on the conference web page.

Submit a proposal that includes a title, an abstract of not more than 150 words, and a summary that does not exceed more than 600 words. If the proposal is accepted for presentation, then the title, abstract and a URL to your lecture or poster will all be included in the conference program. Submit proposals HERE.

Proposal Submission deadline for the 2021 virtual conference is April 30, 2021.
