Quantitative Research Methods Workshop

The Quantitative Research Methods Workshop features cutting-edge research engaged in developing and employing quantitative methods in the social sciences. The workshop will host prominent and up-and-coming scholars in a variety of disciplines, who will present work on a range of topics including experimental design, causal identification in observational studies, text analysis, and election forensics.  The series is being sponsored by the ISPS Center for the Study of American Politics and The Whitney and Betty MacMillan Center for International and Area Studies at Yale with support from the Edward J. and Dorothy Clarke Kempf Fund.

The workshop meets on selected Thursdays from 12:00-1:15 p.m. in Room A002 at ISPS, 77 Prospect Street and is open to the Yale community including Yale faculty, postdoctoral trainees, graduate & professional students, and invited scholars from other academic instutions.  Lunch will be served.
