Qualitative Book Award

ICQI 2021 Qualitative Book Award

Call for Nominations

This award is conferred annually to a member of the qualitative and ethnographic community who has published the English-language book that best represents an important contribution to qualitative inquiry. Eligible books should not be edited books or anthologies. They should be single or co-authored. They will use and advance qualitative methods to investigate any topic or aspect of qualitative inquiry and may involve research reports, interpretations, and analyses. Please note that material intended to serve as textbooks rarely meets the criteria outlined here.

Applications for the award will be judged by criteria that signify a major contribution to the study and practice of qualitative approaches. Such criteria may include success in experimenting with new or traditional writing forms, inclusion of critical reflections on the writing and research process, contributions to living meaningful lives, and insights into creating a socially just world. The award will be presented at the annual meeting of the International Congress of Qualitative Inquiry in May 2021.

To be eligible for the 2021 award, the book must be published between 1st January 2019 and 31st December 2020. Nominators are expected to arrange for copies of the book to be mailed to and received by each member of the three-judge panel (see addresses below).

A letter of nomination for the book should be sent via email or hard copy, no later than 9th November, 2020, to Kathryn Roulston, chair of the committee, at roulston@uga.edu
