The University of Texas at Austin Latino Research Initiative
Intersectional Qualitative Research Methods Institute for Advanced Doctoral Students

Intersectional Qualitative Research Methods Institute for Advanced Doctoral Students

About the Institute:

In 2018, the Latino Research Initiative at The University of Texas at Austin is partnering with the Consortium on Race, Gender, and Ethnicity (CRGE) at the University of Maryland to provide advanced doctoral students a unique training opportunity at the Intersectional Qualitative Research Methods Institute for Advanced Doctoral Students (IQRMI-ADS). Few training institutes in the U.S. focus on qualitative research methods and, currently, none incorporate discussions regarding the intersections of race, gender, class, ethnicity, and other dimensions of inequality.

Let Our Inaugural Cohort Tell you About Their Experience:

Goals of IQRMI-ADS:

  • Enhance qualitative research data analyses, interpretation, and analytic writing skills
  • Develop critical intersectional perspectives for designing and interpreting research
  • Provide guidance on the successful completion of the doctoral degree and transition to a postdoctoral or academic position

Through daily seminars, writing groups, and interactions with peer colleagues, IQRMI-ADS participants have the opportunity to apply their new skills to enhance their research design. Specific areas of research include:

  • Advancing innovation in knowledge and practice in child welfare and juvenile justice systems
  • Promoting economic, social, and educational opportunities for working families
  • Creating community resources for family well-being
  • Addressing disparities and inequities in health and mental health
