Event

Join Us at ICLS2018 in London for a Quantitative Ethnography Workshop!

Interested in learning about the newest theory and methodologies for Epistemic Network Analysis (ENA)?

If so, join us at a half-day workshop on Quantitative Ethnography at ICLS 2018 in London!

There are 4 goals for this half-day workshop:

1. For participants to develop a foundational understanding of Quantitative Ethnography
2. For participants to be able to use two key tools for conducting Quantitative Ethnographic analyses
3. For participants to find a meaningful result from their own data that they can refine in future work
4. For these results to be published in a special issue on current approaches to Quantitative Ethnography

The workshop will provide an overview of the methodology of Quantitative Ethnography and hands-on experience with two tools: (1) ENA, which quantifies and visualizes meaningful connections in data, and (2) rho, a new statistical method for establishing the generalizability of inter-rater reliability metrics.

This is a data-intensive workshop where you will have a chance to apply the tools of Quantitative Ethnography to your own data, discuss your results with other participants, and receive feedback from experts in Quantitative Ethnography.

If you decide to participate, organizers will work with you prior to the conference to format your data for analyses at the workshop. During the workshop, you will work in small groups to analyze your data, and you will have the opportunity to present your findings to the rest of the participants. Each participant will also receive a free copy of the book Quantitative Ethnography to support their ongoing work.
