ATLAS.ti Training [Mac Version 22, Online]

July 25-27, 2022 - Virtual Workshop

This workshop will provide both a conceptual background and practical experience in computer assisted qualitative data analysis (CAQDA) using ATLAS.ti for Mac.

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.

Space is limited to 15 participants so everyone can receive individual attention. Sliding scale: $400-700. Register by June 15 to save $50. Hosted by the Center for Ethnographic Research. Learn more and register here.

Abortion Rights and Assault Weapons

In this episode of the Americast podcast from BBC News, Khiara Bridges, faculty affiliate of ISSI's Center for Ethnographic Research, sits down with the hosts to discuss the potential efficacy of Governor Gavin Newsom's plan to stop the sale and manufacturing of assault weapons in California by copying the anti-abortion tactics of Texas.

Historic Tulsa & Reparations

ISSI faculty affiliate Jovan Scott Lewis, who is a member of California's state task force on reparations, is featured in this KPIX5 CBS Bay Area television interview about his work on the task force, as well as his research on the 1921 Tulsa Race Massacre. Lewis also makes the case for reparations and discusses challenges Black people would face in a post-reparation society.

The Hidden Agenda in GOP Attacks on Critical Race Theory

In this Berkeley News interview, Khiara Bridges, faculty affiliate of ISSI's Center for Ethnographic Research and Berkeley Center for Social Medicine, discusses how right-wing media have promoted a distorted version of critical race theory in order to undermine increasing awareness of systemic racism. The right attacks critical race theory to draw attention away from the detrimental impacts of systemic racism, "but part of the point of these attacks is to neutralize and delegtimize powerful critiques of American life."

New Statewide Leadership Role for Jovan Lewis

CER faculty affiliate member Jovan Lewis was one of five people appointed to Governor Newsom's Task Force to Study and Develop Reparation Proposals for African Americans. The task force is dedicated to "inform Californians about slavery and explore ways the state might provide reparations."

CER Calls for an End to Anti-Asian Violence

CER condemns the recent and on-going violence against Asian Americans and grieves with the families of those lost to or injured by these hate crimes as well as all those who are suffering from racist violence and discrimination. We redouble our commitment to stand in solidarity with Asian American and Pacific Islander communities as we work collectively for a more just future. We support this statement from our friends and colleagues in the Asian American and Asian Diaspora Studies program at UC Berkeley. For those who want to learn more about the historic roots as well as contemporary expressions of anti-Asian racism, we encourage you to read this Berkeley News interview with Lok Siu, Associate Professor of Ethnic Studies, who also emphasizes the often-overlooked interracial solidarity that we need to build upon now.
