    Your decisions as a researcher matters! As Dr. Kakali Bhattacharya (2017) states, “By now you should be aware of the fact that qualitative research is not only diverse, but there is no one correct way of designing or conducting a qualitative study” (p. 92), but this can be confusing for scholars new to qualitative research. This session is focuses on various decisions that you will make as a qualitative researcher. For example, we will discuss the qualitative research approaches and their congruent methodologies and methods.

    In this presentation we will explore contemporary issues in qualitative research that doctoral students should know. While qualitative researchers are “interested in understanding the meaning people have constructed”, this presentation will explore how research becomes me-search. The presenter will share stories as a way of knowing that can create both power and art of possibilities to reimagine and think about me-search in qualitative research.

    We are nearing the end of a very different and challenging semester! On Friday, December 11th, from 4-5:30pm (note updated time from previous email) the CFAES Graduate Student Advisory Committee (GSAC) is hosting a virtual end of semester celebration with other CFAES graduate students. Registered students will be able to pick up a decorate your own mask craft kit on both the Columbus and Wooster campuses to use during the celebration.

    What does it mean to have privilege? How do your social identities (e.g., race, gender, class, religion, sexuality, etc.) grant or deny you privilege? How do you know when you have it and when you don't? How can we use power and privilege to transform systems that perpetuate inequity? This 2-hour interactive webinar will explore these questions, providing participants with an opportunity to delve into their social identities - a process that reveals how we all have and lack privilege simultaneously.
