Measuring Concepts: What We Learn from New Survey Questions about Concepts and Political Behavior — A Workshop with Jane Green

  • Starts12:00 pm on Friday, March 22, 2024
  • Ends1:30 pm on Friday, March 22, 2024

Join us for a workshop with Jane Green, Professor of Political Science and British Politics, Nuffield College, University of Oxford.

This workshop will invite students to think broadly about the concepts they’re interested in, whether those concepts are measured well, if they could be better measured, and how, and what new insights might be gained from better and novel measurement. It will provide examples from new questions fielded in the British Election Study since 2016, and in other surveys, the ‘hidden electorates’ we’ve discovered through this work, and why revealing these ‘hidden electorates’ is so important in informing political life.

Co-sponsored by the Department of Political Science and the Center for the Study of Europe. Lunch provided.

Location:
Pardee School of Global Studies, 121 Bay State Road
