QCA conference: "Social Science Applications and Methodological Challenges"

Posted 30/11/2014

From 15 to 16 January 2015, the conference "Qualitative Comparative Analysis – Social Science Applications and Methodological Challenges" will be held at the Department of Organization Studies at Tilburg University, the Netherlands.

The event is jointly organized by Jörg Raab (Tilburg University), Claudius Wagemann (University Frankfurt) and Betina Hollstein (University of Bremen), and represents the third in a series of three QCA conferences, the first two of which took place in Hamburg (2012) and Frankfurt (2013).

The five panels of the conferences all promise to be highly interesting from an applied as well as methodological perspective. They are "Analyzing Social Inequality" (presentations by Camilla Borgna, Ramsey Wise, Charles Ragin and Peer Fiss), "Applications in Organization Studies and Political Science" (Grégoire Croidieu, Charles Clemens Rüling, Stefan Cloudt, Markus Siewert, Stefan Verweij, Lasse Gerrits, Christian Kroll, Jack Meek, Daniel Schraad-Tischler), "QCA in Mixed Methods Research" (Jonas Buche, Antje Buche, Markus Siewert, Alrik Thiem, Michael Baumgartner, Damien Bol, Sho Niikawa, Andreas Corcaci), "Modelling and Methods Issues in QCA" (Michael Baumgartner, Alrik Thiem, Lakshmi Nair, Michael Gibbert, Carsten Schneider, Ingo Rohlfing) and "Validity and Criticism of QCA Analyses and Results" (Alessia Damonte, Benoît Rihoux).

I will present a paper that is co-authored with Michael Baumgartner and Damien Bol, titled "Still lost in translation! A correction of three misunderstandings between configurational comparativists and regressional analysts". This paper has now been accepted with the journal Comparative Political Studies (also see the News section on my website), and will hopefully soon be available online. The second paper to be presented is co-authored with Michael Baumgartner and titled "When there is more than meets the eye: Model ambiguities in configurational comparative research", a previous version of which we presented at the 2nd International QCA Expert Workshop in Zurich earlier this month.
