The International Society for Empirical Studies of Literature (IGEL) is collaborating with the COST Action group E-READ to organize its first Training School in Empirical Methods for the Humanities. The Training School will be hosted by the Max Planck Institute for Empirical Aesthetics in Frankfurt am Main, Germany on the 22d until the 24th of September of this year.
The aims of the Training School are to teach early career researchers coming from the Humanities the basics of empirical research methodology and to stimulate interdisciplinary collaboration. The participants will learn – through lectures and hands on sessions – to design and set up an experiment; to decide on measuring devices and statistical tests, to use statistical procedures to explore data and conduct basic inferential tests, and to report results.
For more information on the training school and how to apply go to our website: http://www.igel.uni-goettingen.de/about-the-training-school/
If you know of anyone that might be interested, please feel free to send them this email and direct them to the website. If you have any further questions about the training school please send an email to: firstname.lastname@example.org and will get back to you as soon as possible.
