The first Norwegian Q conference is scheduled for November 19-20 in the Clarion Hotel, Stavanger. Co-sponsored by the University of Stavanger and the Norwegian Research Council, the conference will be keynoted by Diane Montgomery (Oklahoma State University, USA) and Susan Ramlo (@sramlo, Akron University, USA). The conference is designed in part to promote the use of Q methodology among Norway’s social and behavioral scientists. Although most papers are expected to be presented in Norwegian, proposals from other Scandinavian researchers (as well as those from elsewhere) are also encouraged. Plans are underway to publish a book comprised of selected revised papers from the conference. Persons interested in attending should contact Ingunn Storksen: or Arlene Thorsen: Details will be announced on the Q-Method list in early summer. A conference website is expected to be up and running within the next two weeks.
