Robert Beauregard, instructor

The primary purpose of this doctoral colloquium was to reflect on the role of research design in social science scholarship.  We focused on general approaches to research as well as more specific methodologies such as case study design, comparative analysis, mixed methods and historical research.  As part of this discussion, we investigated the issue of representation.
