Although medical scientists have been warning for years that a pandemic was an inevitable, COVID-19 has turned our world upside down. While medical professionals and politicians are focusing on ways to manage this crisis and scientists are trying to develop an effective vaccine, social scientists have the tools to examine the impact of the pandemic on the way we live.

Learn How to Adapt to Changing Circumstances
We are social animals, yet most of us have been required to ‘stay at home’ and maintain physical distance in any interaction.  Most qualitative research methods rely on in-person interaction, whether in interviews, focus groups, or observation studies. Many researchers will have to adapt their methods or even change their research design or topic to accommodate these changed circumstances. Other researchers will focus on the new research topics that the pandemic has precipitated. This conference embraces both strands of how researchers are responding to the crisis.
