Summer Institute in Qualitative Research provocations get even more provocative!

The 3rd International Summer Institute of Qualitative Research (SIQR) takes place here at MMU during 22 – 26 July, 2013.

Developed and directed by Prof Maggie MacLure, the Summer Institute is widely acclaimed as a hot house of cutting edge qualitative research, providing an opportunity to learn about the latest in theory and methodology, in dialogue with leading international theorists.

Once again, the roster of keynote speakers is stunning:

But that’s not all!

As in previous years there will be a workshop strand on Putting Theorists to Work


…this year the series of Provocations/improvisations: Encounters Between Art and Qualitative Research will be more extensive and, hopefully, even more provocative! Taking place on Wednesday 24th July 2013 (12.30 – 5.30pm), this will be a series of collaborative events involving artists, musicians, researchers, and art theorists, organised by Rachel Holmes (MMU), Geoff Bright (MMU) and Kelly Clark/Keefe (Appalachian State University)

It’s a week that shouldn’t be missed

And there’s still time to book!
