IQMR - PARTICIPANTS' EXPERIENCES
Over 19 years, IQMR has welcomed nearly 3,000 participants. Here’s what a few of the attendees from 2021 and 2019 had to say:
"Can’t stop thinking about all the invaluable qualitative methods training I received at #IQMR2021. It was that great, y’all. What an inspiring, thought-provoking, and endlessly helpful experience connecting with and learning from such a supportive and
diverse group of scholars."

University of Virginia
'Two weeks of #IQMR2021 were great and incredibly educational. Also very happy with the new people I "met," despite everything being virtual. I hope that one of these days, we can all meet IRL! Now to catch up on some much needed rest...'
University of New Mexico
"Such an amazing module! We are discussing about how to recruit elites vs non elites for interviewing and linking our research design and some of our key concepts to the field research design #iqmr2021"
SOAS, University of London
"#IQMR2021 is a wrap and it's bittersweet- exhausted but learned so much from so many amazing professors and colleagues."
University at Albany
"#IQMR2021 is over. What a great, informative experience!!"
University of Missouri
"Reading other graduate students’ research designs is one of my favorite things to do. Everyone is so impressive and inspiring and passionate in their work 🥺😍 #IQMR2021"
University of California, Irvine
"Celebrating the end of #IQMR2021 with chocolate chip walnut cookies and renewed faith in interpretive and feminist methods. #AcademicTwitter"
“The Ethnography module at #IQMR2021 has me 🤯 over and over again. I feel like even the questions I didn't know I wanted to ask have been answered, and the description/reflexivity/analysis chart is going straight in my toolbelt. Thank You!”
George Mason University
“the past two weeks have made for the most intellectually rigorous, yet gratifying experience i’ve had in graduate school thus far. To all the social science PhD students: If you have the opportunity to attend IQMR next summer (or any other summer):
“Still processing everything that I learned at #IQMR19 over the past 2 weeks. Overwhelmed by the brilliance of these fellow scholars, and excited for the future of qualitative & mixed methods
research! Creativity and diversity are blossoming. Thank you @GSPIA for this opportunity!”
“Is it possible
to bottle up inspiration for sleepy, lonely, hopeless days? The four days I spent learning from Fred Schaffer and Timothy Pachirat (and my fellow ethnographers in training) at #iqmr19 have
breathed a new sense of possibility into my work.”
“Being at #IQMR19 was two weeks well-spent for me and many of my @FletcherSchool and @USMC colleagues. I’ll pass the word to those who follow me that they should definitely attend.”
