For many years, the Workshop has facilitated the establishment of self-organized working groups. Topics covered vary from year to year. Most groups are mechanisms enabling people who share common interests to discuss their current research and benefit from each other’s commentary and criticism. Some groups are focused around a particular research question and have resulted in a published paper, a research design, a research proposal or some other joint product.
In the past we have had working groups on Experimental Methods; History and Philosophy of Science Reading Group; Interdisciplinary Multi-method Research; Program in Institutional Analysis for Social-Ecological Systems (PIASES); Integrating Ecological Perspectives with the Social-Ecological Systems Framework (SES); and a Dissertation Research Group.
If you have suggestions for a new working group, contact Assistant Director Emily Castle.
