Graduate Methods Training Workshop 2018

On September 14-15, 2018, RSW organized and hosted the "Graduate Methods Training Workshop: Focus on Russia." The GMTW brought together 20 emerging social-science scholars from across the United States to IU's Social Science Research Commons (SSRC), a state-of-the-art facility designed for social scientists. There, students met with over a dozen social-science scholars who led panels and discussions on the practicalities of qualitative and quantitative research in and on Russia. The goals of the workshop were to break down the challenges of doing academic research in Russia and encourage an exchange of ideas and research, thereby making students’ time in the field more efficient and effective and fostering a community of emerging scholars—the next generation of social-science scholars in the United States to advance Russian studies.
