Qualitative Research Interest Group

An integral part of CRGE and co-sponsored by the Maryland Population Research Center (MPRC), the Qualitative Research Interest Group (QRIG) is a working group composed of faculty and graduate students who are engaged in enhancing knowledge and utilization of mixed qualitative methods in research and teaching.

QRIG seeks to elevate the profile of mixed qualitative methodologies at UM through programs designed to facilitate collaborative research and inquiry; a lecture series showcasing important and path-breaking qualitative scholarship; and a program of research seed grants for junior faculty conducting mixed qualitative intersectional research.

QRIG creates opportunities for cross-disciplinary discussion and exchange focused on the use of mixed qualitative methodologies in analyzing intersectional dimensions of inequality. To learn more, read our mixed qualitative bibliography (PDF) and see the course offerings at the University of Maryland for classes that teach qualitative methods.
