2018 Summer Institute in Migration Research Methods at Berkeley, funded by Russell Sage Foundation and organized by Irene Bloemraad. This summer institute will provide eight days of training in the use and analysis of migration data at Berkeley from June 17-28, 2018. It targets early career scholars (graduate students, post-docs and untenured junior faculty five years from PhD). The inaugural institute will focus on three topics: (1) collecting, imputing and analyzing data related to legal status; (2) best practices and new methods for surveying and tracking immigrant and mobile populations; and (3) the use of new data sources (e.g., web scraping, social media data) in migration studies. The institute will draw on local and national experts to train attendees and provide on-site mentorship. We also hope to develop public resources for those unable to attend. Stay tuned for more information as it is developed.
