Dr. Donald Pope-Davis, Dean of The Ohio State University, College of Education and Human Ecology (EHE), will be sponsoring an advanced methods institute entitled, “In Support of Culturally Sustaining Research and Researchers” in the Spring of 2020. The goal of this event is to provide an opportunity for an open and challenging discussion of the ways in which research methods impact the cultural relevance and sustainability of scholarly research in the social-behavioral sciences. The institute will be comprised of a series of workshops, with each workshop focusing on a methodological issue (e.g., sampling, design, measurement and data collection, data analysis) that has key implications for the protection of cultural identities, traditions and ways of life.

Faculty, graduate students, and researchers in the social sciences with interest in cultural sustainability are welcome to attend. Each day of the institute will feature workshops conducted by expert researchers. Workshops will build attendees’ skills, highlight issues relevant to research among diverse populations, and employ examples from data sets which address issues which are culturally relevant.

If you are interested in receiving information when the event details become available, please fill out this quick survey.

Faculty, graduate students, and researchers in the social sciences with interest in cultural sustainability can attend for one to four days.  Each day of the institute features two workshops conducted by expert researchers.  Workshops will build attendees’ skills, highlight issues relevant to research among diverse populations, and employ examples from data sets which address issues which are culturally relevant.
