The IQMR Summer Program seeks to enable participants to create and critique methodologically sophisticated qualitative research designs, including case studies, tests of necessity or sufficiency, and narrative or interpretive work. It explores the techniques, uses, strengths, and limitations of these methods, while emphasizing their relationships with alternative approaches. Attendees will have the opportunity to receive constructive feedback on their own research designs. While the final schedule and reading list for the 2019 program is being finalized, applicants can refer to the 2018 program for more information. Also, a 2019 module description is available here.
Selected participants will have their participation costs waived - a roundtrip economy-class airfare, as well as shared-accommodation and board for the duration of the program. Participants will be responsible for securing their visa to the United States and covering any miscellaneous expenses. Participants must be proficient in English and commit to attending the 2-week program in full. The summer sessions commence on June 17 and continue until the evening of June 28, with a two-day break on June 22 and 23. Participants should plan to arrive to Syracuse no later than Sunday June 16 and depart on the evening of June 28 or the morning of Saturday June 29.
