Konstanz Methods Excellence Workshops: Qualitative Comparative Analysis

March 14 - March 18
Online
€390 – €430

Course Description This virtual main course, designed using an innovative pedagogical combination of asynchronous and synchronous on-line elements, introduces you to the nuts and bolts of Qualitative Comparative Analysis (QCA). QCA is an innovative set-theoretic technique that allows for comparisons of small, intermediate or large numbers of cases in order to identify necessary and / or sufficient conditions for an outcome. We will use real-world data to replicate a published study, work with examples from the participants’ own research projects,…

Introduction to Qualitative Comparative Analysis (Southwestern Social Science Association 2022)

April 22 @ 2:30 pm - 3:45 pm CDT
Hyatt Regency San Antonio Riverwalk, 123 Losoya Street
San Antonio, TX 78205 United States
+ Google Map

Qualitative comparative analysis (QCA) uses Boolean algebra to offer an alternative to conventional statistical techniques for analyzing empirical data. While large-N representative applications of QCA are increasingly popular, QCA is especially useful for identifying and understanding cross-case patterns in small- and medium-N projects with data collected using qualitative and/or mixed methods. Fundamentally a pattern-matching technique designed for exploring the differences and diversity within one's data, QCA may be used for uncovering empirical taxonomies, analyzing the effects of context, and identifying…

Introduction to Causal Data Analysis and Modeling with Coincidence Analysis

May 30 - June 2
University of Bergen Bergen, 5007 Norway + Google Map
€540

This workshop offers an intensive 4-day introduction to causal modeling with Coincidence Analysis (CNA), a relatively new configurational comparative method of data analysis geared towards causal complexity. In plenary lectures, the main developer of CNA, Michael Baumgartner, and a team of experienced CNA methodologists and practitioners will guide participants through the nuts and bolts of configurational data analysis as well as cutting-edge methodological innovations. In smaller practice groups, the instructors will demonstrate how to make the most of current software…

Summer School in Social Research Methods: Comparative Research Designs

June 20 - June 24
Radboud University, Houtlaan 4
Nijmegen, 6525 XZ Netherlands
+ Google Map
€431 – €575

The purpose of this course is to provide training on all aspects that enable a researcher to build and implement the most appropriate comparative research design – the latter broadly defined as any research enterprise that comprises at least two ‘cases’ or observations. On the one hand, the course will cover a few fundamental upstream questions: why compare; what is the added value of comparison? What are the logical underpinnings and mental operations behind comparison? What should be the mindset…
