“Quality, non-quality, un-quality” and more in qualitative inquiry
During the recent critical and post-turns ‘the quality question’ in qualitative inquiry has been somewhat bypassed and maybe deemed irrelevant. Many different approaches to address the quality have been developed including different conceptualizations of validity, validation, relationality, and ethics. In this panel each presenter highlights different perspectives on how to respond to the question of quality in today’s neoliberal contexts. This panel returns to the series of quality questions and it aims to problematize the concept and its uses and non-uses. We argue that even though the concept of ‘quality’ might be more or less productive in qualitative inquiry the question of worth, value, and goodness of qualitative inquiry has not disappeared but continues to linger. How should qualitative researchers respond? Who might be willing to respond to the inquiries often coming from other disciplines and inquiry traditions? How might the global community address the quality question differently?
