CEASG researcher participates in summer school on social science research methods hosted by the National University of Singapore

01 August 2014

CEASG researcher Susanne Kamerling participated in a two-week summer school on social science research methods that was held between 30 June and 11 July 2014 and hosted by the National University of Singapore (NUS). The methods school is organised yearly by the International Political Sciences Association (IPSA) and brings together PhD candidates, researchers and practitioners working in a variety of sectors and fields related to social science study and practice. Its nine courses in quantitative, qualitative, and mixed methods attracted more than 100 participants from a wide variety of countries, among them Argentina, Australia, Austria, Bangladesh, Belgium, Brazil, Canada, China, Croatia, Denmark, France, Germany, Greece, Hong Kong, Indonesia, Korea, Macao, Malaysia, Mexico, the Netherlands, Pakistan, the Philippines, Poland, Spain, Switzerland, Taiwan, Thailand, Ukraine, the United Kingdom, and the U.S.

The Methods School has therefore arguably emerged as the leading regional methods program in the Asia-Pacific. It provides participants with an excellent learning experience and its growing network of alumni is creating a global pool of students, post-doctoral fellows, university faculty, civil servants, and private sector researchers with an interest in advanced quantitative, qualitative, and formal research methods.

Next to daily workshops in the morning, and group sessions and hands-on exercises in the, the Methods School organized an international speakers series on topics including 'The Politics of Singapore', 'Geography, Territory and War', 'What Can Weak Parties Say?', and 'Emerging Powers, Identity and Conflict Behaviour'. The Methods school also provides talks on issues to do with professionalization such as 'Writing and Publishing Academic Journal Articles' and 'Applying for Visiting Scholar Positions and Postdocs.'

CEASG-researcher Susanne Kamerling participated in the course Discourse and Visual Analysis taught by prof. Terrell Carver of the University of Bristol in the context of her PhD research project.
