Transparency & Replicability Standards Across the Social Sciences

October 12, 2018


Conversations about transparency and reproducibility of scientific research are taking place across academia. In the social sciences, some of these conversations are motivated by controversy, while others are driven by more mundane concerns about routine scientific practice and the nature of accumulating evidence. Regardless of the motivation, these conversations tend to take place within disciplinary enclaves or even narrower sub-fields.   Therefore, this conference will seek to help participants better understand the contours of these debates, the solutions under consideration, and the possible negative consequences of those solutions. The conference is designed to be: 1) interdisciplinary, 2) geared towards empirically oriented scholars working in the social sciences, broadly defined, and 3) methodologically inclusive (e.g., ethnographers, historians, quantitative scholars, etc.).

The American "Empire" Reconsidered

UChicagoCISSR

Published on May 3, 2018

Professor Anthony G. Hopkins (Emeritus Smuts Professor of Commonwealth History at the University of Cambridge and former Walter Prescott Webb Chair in History at the University of Texas at Austin) discusses his new book,  American Empire.  

Spanning three centuries and multiple continents, Hopkins compares economic development in the U.S. to that of Western Europe, with implications for our understandings of empire and imperialism, colonization and decolonization, and American exceptionalism.
