Announcing Training Opportunities for Social Science Researchers
About Us The ICPSR Summer Program is internationally recognized as the preeminent resource for basic and advanced training in social science research methodologies and technologies.
We offer courses in research design, quantitative reasoning, statistical methods, and data processing. Our goal is to integrate methods of quantitative analysis within a broader context of substantive social research. Additionally, our unique and supportive social environment facilitates the sharing of ideas, approaches, and techniques.
I'm the founder of the Campus Election Engagement Project, a national non-partisan project that I launched in 2008, and whose efforts reached 750 colleges and universities in 2012. We work to help college and university faculty, administrators, and staff get their students involved in the election, helping them register, volunteer, learn about the issues, and turn out at the polls. And we'd love to see you help engage your school. We're launching outreach efforts in a dozen states, and hoping to add more. But in the meantime, there's no reason not to start engaging your school.
We are hosting a gathering of scholars who are investigating the grassroots left in late twentieth century US history. Several of us who are working in this area seek not only to complicate the “right-turn” narrative of late twentieth century U.S. history but also to reassess traditional understandings of the fate of the U.S. Left after the social movements of the 1960s. In these efforts, we likely run into similar questions about recovering those movements, (re)constructing narratives of U.S. politics, and framing our studies.
