The past year has challenged all of us in many ways. We have had to adapt to extended periods of minimal social contact, of working from home, of having to change plans, of home-schooling children, and of learning new digital tools to support teaching and research. We have had to be resilient and creative. This conference is about tapping into that creativity and looking at ways we can transcend boundaries in qualitative research.
