This workshop is focused on QCA empirical applications. Presentations typically discuss work-in-progress (at whatever stage) that exploits any variant of QCA. Researchers from all disciplines are welcome. Presentations that involve mixed/multimethods designs are also welcome as long as QCA is part of the picture. Each presentation is followed by an open discussion. The workshop is introduced by a short opening lecture by Charles Ragin. Speakers are asked to provide at least some slides and, if possible, a work-in-progress paper, so as to get more useful feedback.
This workshop takes place within the framework of the « Irvine Week » at UCLouvain (Louvain-la-Neuve) between 9 and 13 October 2017. This Irvine Week is supported by a bilateral scheme between UCIrvine and UCLouvain ; several UCIrvine scholars from various disciplines will be present on the Louvain-la-Neuve campus during that specific week. We take this opportunity to arrange the presence of Prof. Charles Ragin, the initiator of QCA (Qualitative Comparative Analysis) and seminal developer of Set-Theoretic Methods across social sciences and beyond, on 11 and 12 October.
Speakers (working list): Charles Ragin (UCIrvine), Sofia Pagliarin (WSL Zurich), Christoph Niessen (UCLouvain), Jose Bolanos (King’s College London), …
Depending on the number of speakers (we can accommodate up to 6-7), we’ll fine-tune the maximum duration of each presentation – so as to ensure at least 15 mins of discussion time per presentation. Presentations do not need to be based on full papers ; a few slides or a short synopsis are most welcome, though.
Attendance as speaker or non-speaker; registration: Anyone interested is welcome to attend also as a non-speaker and to intervene in the discussions. The total number of participants (speakers & non-speakers) is capped at 20, first come first serve, registration via e-mail through: firstname.lastname@example.org . Attendance is free of charge; the coffee breaks and a sandwich lunch are offered by the organizers.
