ISSI's Center for Right-Wing Studies and the Institute for Research on Male Supremacism are pleased to announce a general call for papers for a joint conference. The 2nd annual Conference on Right-Wing Studies and Inaugural Conference for Research on Male Supremacism will take place August 5-6, 2020 in Berkeley, CA. Papers on all topics related to the Right as a social, political, or intellectual phenomenon from the 19th century to the present day are welcome, and in addition there will be a special conference track focused on the burgeoning area of research on male supremacism. Participants will have the rare opportunity to join an expanding network of scholars who conduct research on the right-wing and on male supremacism, facilitating the development of this interdisciplinary field and future collaborations that emerge from these connections.
We invite proposals for panels and paper presentations from faculty, graduate students, independent scholars, and others whose work addresses the study of the Right. Individual paper proposals should consist of a title and 500-word abstract. Panel proposals should include a title and a 500-word panel abstract, as well as titles and brief abstracts for all papers; discussants and chairs are welcome, but not mandatory. Paper and panel proposals should be submitted here. Both are due by February 3, 2020.
April 18-19, 2020
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 12 participants so that everyone receives individual attention. Sliding scale: $400-700. Hosted by the Center for Ethnographic Research. Learn more and register here.
