The Institute for Qualitative and Multi-Method Research is pleased to announce its upcoming summer program to be held June 16-28, 2024. The application deadline is October 23, 2023.
The institute seeks to enable participants to create and critique methodologically sophisticated qualitative research designs, including case studies, tests of necessity or sufficiency, and narrative or interpretive work. It explores the techniques, uses, strengths, and limitations of these methods, while emphasizing their relationships with alternative approaches. Topics include research design, concept formation, methods of structured and focused comparisons of cases, typological theory, case selection, process tracing, comparative historical analysis, congruence testing, path dependency, interpretivism, counterfactual analysis, interview and field research (including archival) techniques, necessary and sufficient conditions, fuzzy set methods, and philosophy of science issues relevant to qualitative research.
IQMR attendees receive constructive feedback on their own qualitative research designs, and the course also includes discussions led by the authors of well known works which employ qualitative methods. Illustrations are drawn from exemplary research in international relations, comparative politics, and American politics. The schedule and reading list from the thirteenth annual institute, available through the link on the left, indicates the range of the issues that are covered. Please note, however, that this syllabus will be revised for the fourteenth institute, and should be viewed with this in mind.
