ATLAS.ti Training [PC Version] -- FULL 

June 23-24, 2017

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: $350-700. Learn more here and register here (you will be added to the waitlist)

book cover

Burning Dislike: Ethnic Violence in High Schools, by CER Chair Martín Sánchez-Jankowski, analyzes inter-ethnic conflict that leads to violence among high school students. Based on two ethnographic studies in California and Massachusetts, the book documents the process of sparks of conflict escalating into violence and identifies the conditions under which these "fires" emerge.
