The Institute for Qualitative and Multi-Method Research (IQMR)

Since its founding seventeen years ago, the Institute for Qualitative and Multi-Method Research has welcomed well over two thousand graduate students and junior faculty.

The institute 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. Short descriptions of some of the modules being offered in 2019 can be found under "IQMR Module Description" .

IQMR attendees have the opportunity to receive constructive feedback on their own qualitative research designs. 

CQRM member institutions will use their own meritocratic criteria to select participants to attend the 2019 institute, and must notify CQRM of their choices by February 22nd, 2019. 

Students, fellows and junior faculty who were not sure if they would have be selected, or who attend non-member organizations, should apply directly to CQRM through the open pool. The form can be found here.  The deadline for applications is November 16, 2018. Applicants will be notified of the outcome in December. CQRM will cover the costs of participation, lodging, and meals for successful applicants. Attendees will be responsible for their own transportation costs to and from Syracuse University.

Participants at the 2019 institute will arrive on Sunday June 16th, and depart on Friday June 28th, or Saturday June 29th. Sessions will commence on Monday June 17th. The institute will run until the afternoon of Friday June 28th, with a two day break on June 22nd and 23rd.
