Qualitative research still suffers from the drive to standardize research design and methods. But there are researchers now working at the edge with diverse ontologies and epistemologies to develop more emergent, indigenous, and democratic forms of knowledge. They challenge essentialist approaches and utilize more participative methods that develop research from within, rather that apart from, lived experience and present it in diverse and evocative forms consistent with living within our subject. The aim of QRM 2018 is to explore alternative forms of knowledge, methodologies, methods, ways of ‘theorising’ that expand the possibilities for engaging with the world around us and for developing a more emancipatory social science.
