for networking and mentoring and concludes with a dinner on May 18.
Participants are welcome to depart on May 19 or to take part in an optional

lodging, and food for selected participants for activities from May 16 to
May 18.

To apply, please send the title and description of your research project

their careers.

The Visions in Methodology (VIM) workshop is part of a broad effort to
support women in the field of political methodology. VIM provides
opportunities for scholarship, networking, and mentoring for women in the
political methodology community. In addition to providing a forum to
present research, VIM aims to connect women in a subfield of political
science where they are underrepresented.
