Scenes from the Migrant Caravan in Tijuana

ISSI affiliates Seth M. Holmes, Fabian Fernandez, and Levi Vonk recently traveled to Tijuana, Mexico. During their time with the caravan, they volunteered at a street clinic, donated a vanload of supplies, and supported a legal aid organization correcting misinformation. They documented their time there in this photo essay.

ATLAS.ti Training [PC Version]

March 2-3, 2019

This workshop will provide both a conceptual background and practical experience in computer assisted qualitative data analysis (CAQDA) using ATLAS.ti. After instruction in the fundamental aspects of CAQDA, the course turns to the logic of the ATLAS.ti program, and how it functions as a tool for CAQDA.

By the end of the course, participants will have all the conceptual and practical tools necessary to employ ATLAS.ti in their current or future projects involving qualitative data.

The workshop will be limited to 15 participants so that everyone receives individual attention. Sliding scale: $400-700. Register by January 7 to save $50. Hosted by the Center for Ethnographic Research. Learn more and register here.

New Book on Youth, Jobs, and the Future

ISSI is happy to announce the release of Youth, Jobs, and the Future: Problems and Prospects (Oxford University Press). This edited volume emerged from a conference organized by ISSI, which featured an interdisciplinary mix of scholars who examine persistent issues of youth unemployment and worsening social-economic precarity in the U.S. The book explores causes of youth unemployment, along with privilege and disadvantage in the youth labor market, and locates solutions to youth unemployment in economic and political changes as well as shifts in cultural attitudes.
