Message from the Congress Chairs


Dear All,

Welcome to the site for the 6th European Congress of Qualitative Inquiry!

As Congress Chairs, we are pleased to introduce you to this website which provides all the information you need on: the congress theme; submitting an abstract, keynotes and workshops, fees and registration, draft programme and information about Portsmouth and the University. The congress theme is ‘Qualitative Inquiry in the Anthropocene: Affirmative and generative possibilities for (Post)Anthropocentric futures’.

The face to face congress will be held at the University of Portsmouth in the UK. This will include pre-congress workshops and a wine reception on the 10th January 2023. The main congress will be between 11th – 13th January 2023. We welcome the following types of abstract submissions: game changers, individual papers, individual posters, dream team/workshops.

There will be a separate hybrid strand with the first online congress day on 18th November 2022 and the second day on 2nd December 2022. The programme for the online congress will follow, sessions will be open to all those who have registered for the online event and the panels will be recorded and added to the website (password protected), along with the keynotes (available in January 2023) and posters. There also will be an option to submit a poster to be digitised and made available to online participants.

We look forward to seeing many of you in Portsmouth or online!

Nikki Fairchild and Emma Maynard
(ECQI2023 Congress Chairs)
