Call for Submissions


June 14-16, Boston College


"Transforming Psychology and Reimagining Knowledge"


The Society for Qualitative Inquiry in Psychology (SQIP) is thrilled to announce the Call for Submissions for the upcoming annual meeting, which will take place June 14-16, 2024, at Boston College, Massachusetts, USA. 


We are honored to host a fantastic lineup of internationally known keynote speakers, including Puleng Segalo, Molly Andrews, Christopher Sonn, and Urmitapa Dutta.


We invite scholars, practitioners, and students to contribute to a vibrant discussion that challenges the status quo and reimagines psychological knowledge. The field of psychology stands at a critical juncture, where the imperative to reflect on and address its historical underpinnings in racism and colonialism is undeniable. We specifically encourage submissions that engage critically with psychology's racist and colonial past, offer reflexive qualitative research, and propose paradigms or methods that foreground knowledge from historically underrepresented or marginalized communities. 


The conference will feature a dynamic range of presentation formats: 

Symposium (75 mins): Please include a symposium cover abstract (up to 250 words), names and affiliations of all authors for each talk (3 speakers per symposium), and abstracts for each talk (up to 250 words). 

Individual paper submission: Please include names and affiliations of all authors and an abstract of no more than 250 words.

Poster submission: Please include the names of all authors and an abstract of no more than 250 words.

Roundtable discussion (60 mins): Please include an abstract (up to 250 words) and all names of all speakers.
