International Methods Colloquium: 2018-2019 Schedule!

By Justin Esarey

On behalf of the advisory board (Michelle Dion, Cassy Dorff, Jeff Harden, Dustin Tingley, and Chris Zorn), I am pleased to announce the schedule of International Methods Colloquium series talks for the 2018-2019 academic year!

The International Methods Colloquium (IMC) is a weekly seminar series of methodology-related talks and roundtable discussions focusing on political methodology; the series is supported by Wake Forest University and was previously supported by Rice University and a grant from the National Science Foundation. The IMC is free to attend from anywhere around the world using a PC or Mac, a broadband internet connection, and our free software. You can find out more about the IMC at our website:

where you can join a talk in progress using the “Watch Now!” link. You can also watch archived talks from previous IMC seasons at this site. Registration in advance for a talk is encouraged, but not required.

Note that all talks begin at 12:00p Eastern Time and last precisely one hour.
