Innovations in Research CFP
Have you been faced with a research dilemma recently? Perhaps it was reticent human subjects, impossible-to-obtain records, materials that you just couldn't get a handle on, or something else unexpected. How did you resolve it? What disciplinary or interdisciplinary methods did you use--or invent--to address the issue? How did it all work out (or fail)?
This panel will highlight research innovations--the kind of thinking that helps us troubleshoot difficulties that arise as we research. While panelists will discuss the content of their work enough to familiarize the audience with their projects, they will focus on the expected and unexpected difficulties of research and how they were resolved.
Submit a title, 250 word abstract, and one-page CV to Rebecca Barrett-Fox at email@example.com if interested.
