Arizona Methods Workshops

10th Annual Arizona Methods Workshops
March 21 and 22 (Saturday/Sunday) 2020

About the Methods Workshops

The Arizona Methods Workshops are hosted by the School of Sociology at the University of Arizona. The goal of the event is to share the methodological expertise of our school, college and discipline with the wider community of social scientists. The workshop topics and instructors vary from year to year. The workshops are small and offer time for practical, hands-on work. The atmosphere is informal and is enhanced by optional social events (lunch, happy hour) that allow participants, instructors, as well as UA Sociology faculty and students time to mingle.

This year the ASA methods section is organizing and co-hosting a mid-year meeting (on the theme "Replication and Rigor") to be held in Tucson March 20, 2020, in conjunction with the Arizona Methods Workshops which runs from March 21-22, 2020.
