When the selection process has ended (in the end of April at latest), every applicant will be notified by mail . Thank you for all your applications!
At the 14th Scancor PhD workshop on Institutional Analysis international faculty will present current research, review recent papers, and discuss new methodological tools that deepen the institutional agenda. Special attention is given to institutional emergence, persistence, and transformation. We also emphasize methods of comparative, archival, and network analysis. Finally, we tackle issues involving contestation and strife around institutions and organizations.
Students will take away new insights and measures, and a deeper understanding of how to match conceptual questions with research methods. The workshop will prepare PhD students to carry out their own individual research using the methods of institutional analysis. Teaching faculty include Woody Powell, Sarah Soule, Patricia Bromley, Gili Drori, and Bruce Carruthers. There will also be an open lecture series on topics such as “The Institutions of the Civil Society”, “Rankings and Competition in Higher Education”, “Social Movements and Institutional Change”, and “Historical Perspectives of Scandinavian and American Institutions”.
