> Subject: [methodology-announce] summer workshops at Indiana
>
>
> The Karl F. Schuessler Institute for Social Research Intensive  
> Program at Indiana University is pleased to announce two one-week  
> workshops in research methods for Summer, 2007. Our workshops  
> provide intensive instruction by premier faculty in a congenial,  
> interactive environment. They are designed to benefit graduate  
> students and faculty who seek to hone their skills in specific  
> areas as well as professionals in business, health research, and  
> government. Both workshops will be held in Bloomington, Indiana.
>
> Workshop I
> Social Network Analysis: Theory and Methods
> June 11-15, 2007
> Instructors: Professor Bernice A. Pescosolido and Professor Stanley  
> Wasserman, Indiana University
> This workshop will be offered through the Inter-university  
> Consortium for Political and Social Research (ICPSR) Summer  
> Program. It covers the theory and methods of network analysis.  
> Unlike Network Analysis: An Introduction (taught in Ann Arbor),  
> this course covers not only methodology, but also theoretical  
> concerns and substantive backgrounds of network studies. It is  
> designed for students, faculty, and other researchers in the social  
> and behavioral sciences who are interested in learning how to  
> translate theoretical conceptualizations of networks into empirical  
> practice. Morning and afternoon sessions are coordinated so that  
> each day presents theoretical, historical and substantive  
> developments in the field with parallel issues and examples in data  
> and analytic techniques. Workshop participants apply those  
> techniques in late afternoon, computer lab sessions. Registration  
> for the Social Network Analysis workshop will be available through  
> the ICPSR website in late February (http://www.icpsr.umich.edu/ 
> training/summer/index.html).
>
> Workshop II
> Qualitative Methods
> July 9-13, 2007
> Instructor: Professor Sue E. Estroff, University of North Carolina,  
> Chapel Hill
> This intensive workshop is designed as a multi-method exploration  
> of qualitative inquiry for students and scholars who have some  
> experience with research, and would like to deepen their  
> familiarity and facility with various qualitative data collection  
> and analysis techniques. It is most appropriate for students,  
> faculty, and other researchers who have a specific project at  
> present, or planned in the near future, that can serve as a  
> foundation for work in the class. Through a combination of  
> readings, exercises, discussion, writing, and presentation,  
> participants will engage with the theoretical foundations of  
> qualitative research as well as gain hands-on experience with  
> diverse qualitative techniques.  The workshop covers but does not  
> focus on the use of software programs for coding and analyzing text  
> data.  Prospective participants who wish to focus on coding  
> software should seek out other forms of training. The class is  
> limited to 14 participants to allow for substantial interaction  
> with the faculty and other students in dyadic or other small group  
> settings. Significant participation in selecting directions for the  
> class will come from the participants. Registration for the  
> Qualitative Methods workshop is available beginning February 1,  
> 2007 at www.indiana.edu/~isr/isrip.
>
> You can find more information about both workshops at
