Gary Goertz, Professor at the Kroc Institute for International Peace Studies, University of Notre Dame, is visiting Warwick on 13 March, 2019. Prof. Goertz is a highly influential scholar on issues of conceptual development, causal mechanisms and multi-methods research. Professor Goertz will present work from his forthcoming, completely revised book, Social Science Concepts: A User’s Guide. Earlier versions of this book have served as a touchstone for students of political science and social sciences more broadly.
Professor Goertz will give a small workshop with faculty (including post-docs) and Ph.D. students (2:00-3:30, Ramphal Building, R0.03 on “Guidelines for Constructing and Evaluating Complex Concepts”), and present at the closing session of the Politics and International Studies Department seminar for term 2 (4:00 – 5:30 pm. Ramphal building R0.03 on "Three Schools of Conceptualization and Measurement: with Applications to Global Indicators such as related to Poverty and Human Well-being").
Interested colleagues are invited to write to the co-organizers Tom Long firstname.lastname@example.org and Maria Koinova email@example.com to RSVP and for further information. A flyer of Prof. Goertz talk at 4 pm. is attached here.
The Warwick Annual Debate on the Future of International Political Economy takes place on Wednesday March 13th at 5pm in S0.12.
This year's debate will challenge some of the common interpretations of Brexit, whilst offering up a wider range of ways in which we can better understand it, including through gender, post-colonial and new institutionalist lenses. By broadening our vision and placing Brexit within longer term political, cultural and economic contexts, the debate will shed light on Brexit as a process, and on what it means for the political economy of Britain and Europe.
We have, again, a great line-up of speakers: Professor Roberta Guerrina, University of Surrey; Professor Ben Rosamond, Copenhagen University; Dr Nadine El-Enany, Birkbeck University of London; and Dr Muireann O'Dwyer, University of Warwick. All welcome!
Tuesday 2nd July, 2019. 9.30am—5.00pm. Maths Building, University of Warwick.
