June 2021

The AERA-ICPSR PEERS Data Hub will hold a no-fee workshop on “ICQCM: Shaping Critical Data Science for a Diverse World” on July 15, 1:00 pm–4:00 pm ET. The workshop will broadcast live on Zoom. ASL interpretation and captioning will be provided. Attendees can register here.

Taught by experts Odis Johnson Jr. (Johns Hopkins University), Ezekiel Dixon-Román (University of Pennsylvania), and Ebony McGee (Vanderbilt University), the workshop will focus on using quantitative, computational, and mixed methods to critically engage with and address the conditions, forces, and processes of structural racism and oppression.

Instructors will discuss and demonstrate how to employ quantitative and computational methods that are situated in context, history, material social relations, and as a product of material and discursive formations.

They will also provide examples of non-instrumental approaches of quantification that do not essentialize, universalize, or treat data as self-evident, while emphasizing an analytical focus on multiplicity and diversity.

This PEERS workshop is the fifth webinar in the 11-part PEERS Research Methods Series. The series is held in collaboration with the Institutes in Research Methods (IRM), funded by the National Science Foundation through the NSF’s Building Capacity in STEM Education Research (BCSER) program.

The PEERS Data Hub was launched by AERA and the Inter-university Consortium for Political and Social Research (ICPSR) in November 2020. It is an NSF-funded collaborative space for STEM education research communities to build and advance knowledge by using diverse forms of data; sharing innovative ideas, methods, and tools; and building research capacity. The platform is supported by NSF through its Core Research Program in the Directorate for Education and Human Resources.
