The course is taught by:
Brigitte Le Roux, CEVIPOF/CNRS (Centre de recherches politiques de Sciences Po), and Université Paris Descartes, Paris — Web site
Philippe Bonnet, Université Paris Descartes, Paris.
Frédéric Lebaron, Université de Picardie Jules-Verne, Amiens — Web site
Mikael Börjesson, Tobias Dalberg, Andreas Melldahl & Emil Bertilsson, SEC, Uppsala University — Web site

The course is offered to researchers, PhD-students and Master students.

Also those who have attended our earlier courses on Geometric Data Analysis (GDA) and correspondence analysis are welcome to participate in this one, and especially the latter part. Much new stuff will probably be offered.

Course materials will be available at this web page.

Each participant is supposed to bring a laptop with the statistical programme SPSS and SPAD (you will get a trial version for the
course a few days in advance) installed. Make sure that you have some amount of disk space available. If this causes difficulties, please contact the course coordinators in advance.

We recommend the use of the most recent version of the SPAD software,
see http://www.coheris.com/produits/analytics/logiciel-data-mining/
This version includes special features (i.a. specific MCA as well as tools for the construction of concentration and confidence ellipses) developed by Brigitte Le Roux et al.
Before the start of the course the participants will receive information on how to download and install SPAD on their laptops. For more information please contact Mikael Börjesson <mikael.borjesson@edu.uu.se>,

Admission: To apply for admission send an e-mail to mikael.borjesson@edu.uu.se no later than July 30th, 2012.

On the French guest teachers

The mathematician Brigitte Le Roux is  an associate researcher at CEVIPOF/CNRS (Centre de recherches politiques de Sciences Po), and also since many years affiliated to the laboratory of Applied Mathematics (MAP5/CNRS and Université Paris Descartes).

She did complete her doctoral dissertation with J.-P. Benzécri and has written several books with the late Henry Rouanet. Among the books written by Brigitte Le Roux and Henry Rouanet are the standard work Geometric Data Analysis. From Correspondence Analysis to Structured Data Analysis (Kluwer, 2004) and Multiple Correspondence Analysis (Sage, 2010) .

Today Brigitte Le Roux is world leading specialist in the French "analyse des données" tradition. This statistical tradition, founded by Jean-Paul Benzécri in the 1960's and the 1970's, has in recent years often been called "Geometric Data Analysis." It includes methods such as Correspondence Analysis (CA), Multiple Correspondence Analysis (MCA) and versions of Euclidean Classification. In the social sciences the most well-known application is multiple correspondence analyses of the distribution of individuals and properties within "social fields" in Bourdieu's sense, but the tradition has much more to offer.

Brigitte Le Roux and Henry Rouanet have not only been the most prominent trustees of Jean-Paul Benzécri's scholarly heritage. They have also made significant contributions of their own—such as "specific multiple correspondence analysis" and the visualisation programme EyeLID—that are used in current research, particularly by social scientists inspired by the works by Pierre Bourdieu and his collaborators. Brigitte Le Roux and Henry Rouanet were among Pierre Bourdieu's close collaborators during his last years and did for example take part in the Bourdieu's last empirical study, on the French field of publishers (reported in Actes, no 126-127, March 1999) where he for the first time made use of the specific multiple correspondence analysis. Outside of  France, Brigitte Le Roux and Henry Rouanet have taken part in studies on lifestyles in the United Kingdom, in the Norwegian study on power and in a series of studies on  Swedish fields of higher education and culture.

Another guest teacher in the technical lectures and workshop will be Philippe Bonnet, a CNRS social psychologist and statistician at the Cognitive Psychology and Neuropsychology Laboratory of Paris Descartes University (LPNCog), who during many years collaborated with H. Rouanet and B. Le Roux.

Frédéric Lebaron is professor of sociology at Université de Picardie-Jules Verne à Amiens. He is the head of the Centre universitaire de recherches sur l’action publique et le politique - épistémologie et sciences sociales (CURAPP-ESS).
