ATLAS.ti Training [PC Version]

September 14-15, 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 August 7 to save $50. Hosted by the Center for Ethnographic Research. Learn more and register here.


Labor, Health, Racialization, and Immigration in Comparative Perspective

ISSI hosted four visiting scholars from Norway as part of the project, “Transnational Migration and Inequality: Implications for Health and Health Services.” The project is led by Seth Holmes, Co-Chair of the Berkeley Center for Social Medicine, Heidi E. Fjeld, Associate Professor at the University of Oslo, Norway, and Johan Fredrik Rye, Professor at the Norwegian University of Science and Technology, and funded by the Peder Sather Center, UCB. In May, ISSI’s Berkeley Center for Social Medicine hosted a three-day workshop focused on im/migration in the USA and Norway. Scholars discussed comparative hierarchies of deservingness, labor, racialization, unions, access to health institutions, among other concerns being faced by immigrant communities. Pictured above are those who visited Swanton Berry Farm to speak with a United Farm Workers (UFW) union organizer and farmworkers.
