The course consists of both theoretical lessons, where the main statistical techniques are introduced, and empirical lessons, where techniques are empirically implemented (learning by doing). Lessons are coupled with 20 hours of lab, aiming to consolidate the topics of the classes and to work on the students' final research.
Expected learning outcomes
By critically discussing the arguments of the assigned readings in an interactive environment, students will become able to find their way in the literature on social movements. Furthermore, they will be stimulated to apply the concepts and theories learned to past and contemporary social movements, which will enable them to problematize such concepts and theories through an empirical understanding of the course's contents.
