A new article was recently published by UA qualitative research faculty members, Dr. Stephanie Anne Shelton and Dr. Kelly W. Guyotte, along with former graduate student and current Assistant Professor at the University of Georgia, Dr. Maureen A. Flint. Entitled entitled "(Wo)monstrous Suturing: Woman Doctoral Students Cutting Together/Apart", the article appears in a special issue of Reconceptualizing Educational Research Methodology and centers the experiences and understandings of women doctoral students during two separate focus groups and collaborative collages. (Re)theorizing “monsters” as “intra-sectional” through Karen Barad’s and Kimberlé Crenshaw’s scholarship, these scholars (re)position the “monstrous” as agentive and self-creative concepts.

Dear QR SIG Members:
The QR SIG Mentoring Committee is again offering the opportunity for its members to receive one-on-one or small group guidance from established and well-regarded qualitative scholars through our Office Hours initiative. Office Hours matches graduate students and early career faculty with those more established in the field for face-to-face meetings at the AERA Annual Meeting in San Francisco. We are now inviting mentees (graduate students and early career faculty) the opportunity to participate by responding through the survey link below. This year, we are asking that participants request 3-5 scholars with whom they would like to meet. Though we cannot guarantee a match with these individuals, we will reach out to the requested scholars to see if they are interested and available to participate at this year’s AERA meeting in San Francisco. If you need ideas of scholars to request that will be at AERA, the online program is available at: https://convention2.allacademic.com/one/aera/aera20/. You can search by “Unit” and “SIG” to see sessions within the QR SIG.
Anyone is welcome to sign up, but space is limited and assignments will be made in the order requests are received. If you are interested, please fill out this form: https://forms.gle/9voR7TC98ugWvX427,
which asks for specific topics to be explored and the mentors you are interested in speaking with. If you have any questions, please email Susan Cannon at firstname.lastname@example.org or Adam Clark Adam.T.Clark@asu.edu. Please complete this form no later than February 7th, 2020. Once we confirm matches, we will send an email connecting you and the scholar so that you can determine a time to meet that works with your AERA schedules. We plan to have matches completed in early March.
We hope you will consider taking advantage of this opportunity!
