    The Alchemy of Qualitative Research: Crafts and Routines

    Professional Development Workshop

    2023 Academy of Management Annual Meeting

    4-8 August 2023 in Boston, MA, USA


    We are excited to be putting on a Professional Development Workshop (sponsored by the Research Methods Division) focused on supporting scholars who are relatively new to qualitative methods. Motivated by our 2022 AOM panel symposium "A Junior Scholar's Guide to Navigating the Trials and Triumphs of Qualitative Research," we aim to support and develop scholars who are just starting to dip their toes into qualitative methods through an opportunity to (i) hear from experts in qualitative research on their crafts and routines for conducting qualitative research, including their idiosyncratic practices that are generally not shared in publications, and (ii) gain personalized feedback on their projects from fellow qualitative researchers. All in all, this PDW will consist three parts:


    1. Introduction to the idea of "the alchemy of qualitative research"

    2. Panel discussions by expert qualitative researchers  – Charlotte Cloutier, Spencer Harrison, Majken Schultz, and John Paul Stephens – on their own "crafts and routines" followed by a discussion amongst all speakers/organizers and a Q&A from the audience.

    3. Research development roundtables facilitated by the featured speakers and workshop organizers targeting scholars relatively new to qualitative research to support their qualitative research at their respective stages of development. Participants need to submit a 2-page document with an abstract of current or upcoming project and a statement that outlines their most pressing challenges.



    • 4-8 August 2023 (exact date/time will be updated when set)

    • In-person in Boston, MA, USA
