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.

New Book on Ethnic Violence in Schools
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.
