Welcome

“A really fantastic space for discussion of critical qualitative researching.”

Professor Virginia Braun, University of Auckland. QRSE2018 Keynote Speaker.

The Department of Sport and Exercise Sciences at Durham University is delighted to be hosting the 7th International Conference for Qualitative Research in Sport and Exercise from 7th – 9th July, 2020. Pre-conference workshops will take place on 6th July.

On behalf of the organising committee, we warmly welcome you to Durham – a World Top 100 University. The city is home to one of the most recognisable landmarks in the UK, majestic Durham Cathedral. Together, with the adjacent Durham Castle, this UNESCO World Heritage Site forms one of the most stunning city panoramas in Europe.

Once again, this conference promises to showcase qualitative research from diverse disciplines including sport and exercise psychology, the sociology of sport, coaching, pedagogy, history, anthropology, sport management, and health promotion.

We are thrilled that the Keynote speakers for the 2020 conference will be Professors Nick Holt, Emmanuelle Tulle and Ben Carrington – each chosen for their strong record as thought-leaders in our fields and for their ongoing commitment to pushing us forward while making sure our foundations are strong.

We look forward to the return of past delegates from around the world and the opportunity to welcome new faces as we gather together to learn, share knowledge, and continue building our community.
