Through this symposium, we will open discussions about how vulnerability is constructed, and what vulnerability looks and feels like for researchers, our research projects, and the methods we use.
Qualitative Research Symposium
The Qualitative Research Symposium (QRS) is an annual one-day event run by the Centre for Qualitative Research.
