This year’s theme The "Glorious Triumph" of Symbolic Interactionism: Honouring the Past/Forging the Future, reflects the contributions that interpretive theories, especially symbolic interactionism, have made to the development of qualitative research and on the importance of linking theory and methods.

The keynote address, After Terrorism, will be delivered by David Altheide, Regents’ Professor Emeritus in the Faculty of Justice and Social Inquiry at Arizona State University. Dr. Altheide, well known for his work on media and the construction of discourses of fear, will discuss the recent Trump victory and Brexit.
