We are so pleased to celebrate Qualitative Inquiry faculty member, Dr. Aaron Kuntz, for receiving the prestigious President's Faculty Research Award here at The University of Alabama. Dr. Kuntz was one of seventeen faculty finalists from across the university and he was awarded the Senior Investigator Award in the Social and Behavioral Sciences category. Dr. Kuntz's "research focuses on developing 'materialist methodologies' – ways of producing knowledge that take seriously the theoretical deliberations of critical theory, new materialism, and poststructuralism that have emerged in social theory over the past fifty years. He grounds this methodological theorizing in empirical questions about the production of inquiry in the K-16 arena, faculty work and activism in postsecondary institutions, and the impact of the built environment on learning" (http://ovpred.ua.edu/faculty-research-day/2017-finalists/aaron-kuntz/). This award is a tremendous honor and a testament to the excellent scholarly contributions by Dr. Kuntz to the field of qualitative research methodology.
Please congratulate Dr. Kuntz on this incredible accomplishment!
