The theme for the 2018 IRMSS summer school has been chosen as a responsive and relevant opportunity for the dissemination of the significant body of postgraduate and early career research on language, learning and culture currently underway in colleges and universities, nationally and internationally.

We welcome proposal abstracts from novice and seasoned researchers working in qualitative, quantitative and hermeneutical research traditions in education, the social sciences and the arts and humanities, among other traditions.

Our goal is to bring together researchers interested in pursuing the possibilities and potentials of research in new, different and alternative discursive and representational spaces and in the context of a memorable social, professional and residential community of practice.

The IRMSS invitation is wide open to all researchers engaged in researching policy, ideology and evidence as contested terrain across qualitative, quantitative and hermeneutical traditions and disciplinary, interdisciplinary and transdisciplinary worldviews

On behalf of the IRMSS Programme Committee, I hope that you will gather with us in challenging enduring questions and suggesting innovative responses in research methods and contribute your own unique and original slant on the debates and controversies in research methods today.
