Our Next Event

October 26, 2019
Tom Biolsi
4 - 5:30 p.m.
Shorb House, Latinx Research Center

This talk will be based on Prof. Biolsi’s recently published book, Power and Progress on the Prarie, which traces the history of “modernization,” “improvement,” or “progress” on Rosebud Reservation. The central question of the book is how ideas about making things “better” were invented and applied to the people—both Indian and white—and the land.

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.
