Roger Thayer Stone Center For Latin American Studies

Tulane University

4th Annual Weekend Workshop on Social Science Research Methods

November 14th, 2009
9:00 AM - 4:00 PM

Jones Hall 100A
Greenleaf Conference Room

How will you get the data you need for your thesis or dissertation? Do you envision immersing yourself for months in ‘€œthe local culture‘€, sorting through dusty archives in the capital, downloading statistical data at a computer… or some of each? This non-credit workshop will help you decide what data you need, how you will analyze the data, and what skills, tools and concepts you need to learn to realize your research project. It will help you:

  • plan more feasible and rewarding master‘€™s and doctoral level fieldwork
  • prepare more competitive grant proposals,
  • navigate choices of methods courses offered in different departments
  • gain new perspectives and tools to improve your research.

The workshop is targeted to Latin American Studies masters and doctoral students, as well as graduate students from social science disciplines, including public health.

To sign up email Laura Murphy at to get on the list. By November 1, submit a short summary (1/2 page) of your research question and methods.

For more information see the Workshop Flyer or contact Laura Murphy or Jimmy Huck.
