How qualitative (or interpretive or critical) is qualitative synthesis and what we can do about this?

Thanks to everyone who attended the seminar on ‘How qualitative (or interpretive or critical) is qualitative synthesis’, it was a huge success.
 

 
And you can watch ‘SCPHRP meets George’ here
 

 
George W. Noblit is the Joseph R. Neikirk Distinguished Professor of Sociology of Education at the University of North Carolina at Chapel Hill. He, with Dwight Hare, developed meta-ethnography. He had occasionally written more about it and has consulted on several large qualitative synthesis projects. He has a forthcoming article on the meta-ethnography of autoethnographies as well as a book in process, The cultural construction of identity: Metaethnographies and theorizing. In truth, however, he more a practicing qualitative researcher whose work has won several awards. He specializes in the study of racialization and class formation from a decidedly critical lens. He is the editor/author of 18 books.
His most recent book, Is Education, equity and economy: Crafting a new intersection for Springer. He edits The Urban Review and two book series. Most recently he is the founding editor of the Oxford Research Encyclopedia of Education which he hopes will not deter Scottish separatists from attending his presentation.
