Qualitative Inquiry Circle (QUIC)

The Qualitative Inquiry Circle (QUIC) is a social and intellectual circle of graduate students with interest in qualitative inquiry, specifically inquiry that has the intent of advocating for social justice.

We foster community, spur networking, and provide space for the critical discussion of qualitative epistemologies, theories, methodologies, methods, analyses, and representations. We also encourage discussion concerning professional development and the consideration of the thesis/dissertation process, teaching portfolios, recommendation letters, job applications/interviews, research/teaching presentations, peer emotional support, and mentorship. Finally, we come together to share ideas, give critique, and gain support for individual qualitative thesis/dissertation research development and completion.

QUIC meets one Friday each month from 6-9pm (TBA)

  • 7-8pm Students discuss their progress and pose questions concerning individual research projects
  • 8-9pm One student (to be decided during our first meeting each Fall) presents her/his research at length and is given intensive feedback by the circle members.
