The Society for Qualitative Inquiry in Psychology (SQIP), an organized and independent section of Division 5 of the American Psychological Association, is pleased to announce its annual conference to be held for one day only at the Graduate Center, CUNY, on Thursday, May 14, 2015.

For this event, we are soliciting proposals for organized symposia (featuring 3-5 presenters who will address a common theme during a 90-minute session) concerning any area of qualitative inquiry in psychology, including (but not limited to) theoretical advances in qualitative inquiry; empirical progress within qualitatively-analyzed content domains of psychology; psychological diversity related to ethnoracial, cultural, socioeconomic, gender, and sexual orientation status within qualitative inquiry; and strategies and practices for effective instruction in specific qualitative methods. Proposals that involve or include psychology graduate students are encouraged.

Please note that space is limited on the conference program. We anticipate the opportunity to accept perhaps a dozen symposia for this conference. Thus, we regret that proposals for standalone papers or posters cannot be accepted this year. Please note that all accepted presenters will be required to become members of SQIP (join here: and to register for the conference in order to appear on the final conference program.

Complete proposals should include the name and contact info (including email addresses) for the symposium organizer/chair and all presenters. In addition, an overarching symposium title and abstract (not to exceed 300 words), plus complete titles and abstracts (not to exceed 300 words) for each individual presentation within the symposium must be included. The entire proposal should be submitted by email as a single, well-organized document in Microsoft Word format to Dr. Joseph Gone at by Sunday, November 30, 2014. Review of proposals by the SQIP leadership will result in notification of acceptance no later than Sunday, February 1, 2015.

Please address additional questions about this Call to Dr. Gone at We look forward to seeing you in New York!
