Special Interest Group of the International Congress of Qualitative Inquiry

As Indigenist philosophy grows and asserts its place, Indigenist researchers have begun to ask how peer review processes would look from this base. Facilitated by Indigenist researchers representing different phases of academic life, this workshop will provide participants the opportunity to speak from the heart about peer review processes and its impact on scholarship. We will explore peer review processes entrenched in such academic activities as publication, tenure, grant applications, job applications, graduate programs, and promotion. We will explore alternative practices around peer review that are practical, ethical, responsible, and reciprocal.  Participants may propose peer review processes that are encircled in community ways of knowing and being that allows for both practical application and the growth of Indigenous knowledge systems.
