2017-09-07. Seminar

Ambivalent Internationals: How U.S. Social Scientists See the Rest of the World

Professor Mitchell Stevens, Stanford University

Time: Thursday 7 September 2017 at 13.00–15.00
Place: Företagsekonomiska institutionen (Stockholm Business School), Kräftriket, Hus 3 (Building 3), the Boardroom
           How to get there: http://www.sbs.su.se/english/education/student-life/find-us/find-your-way-around-kr%C3%A4ftriket

Language: English

U.S. academics continue to lend priority to the study of problems in the Global North and supposedly “general” models of social processes based on empirical inquiries in their own country. Overall, senior faculty in economics, political science, and sociology discourage doctoral study of phenomena beyond US borders. This creates startlingly large lacunae in disciplinary social-science knowledge over time. Findings are based on a study of social-science inquiry on eight U.S. university campuses during the last years.

2017-10-09–2017-10-13. Course on GDA

Summer School on Geometric Data Analysis
in the Study of Transnational Fields and Global Organization

Universität Potsdam, Wirtschafts- und Sozialwissenschaftliche Fakultät, 9–13 Oct. 2017

(Potsdam is very close to Berlin)

The summer school offers a practice-oriented training in the methods and methodology of Geometric Data Analysis (GDA).

i) a basic introduction into the statistical background of methods like Correspondence Analysis, Multiple Correspondence Analysis and Euclidian Cluster Analysis;
ii) a hands-on training in using the program SPAD to conduct GDA;
iii) presentations of sociological research that applies GDA methods;
iv) and the chance to discuss own research projects with experienced researchers.

Teaching will be in English.

Course coordination:
Valeska Korff, Christian Schmidt-Wellenburg, Diane Bombart (University of Potsdam)

Teaching faculty:
Brigitte Le Roux (CEVIPOF/CNRS and Université René Descartes, Paris)
Philippe Bonnet (Université René Descartes, Paris)
Frédéric Lebaron (ENS Cachan-Saclay and UMR CNRS-UVSQ 8085 lab. Printemps)
