This grant will support two conferences—one in 2018 and one in 2019–sponsored by Visions in Methodology (VIM). VIM is a mentoring and outreach organization with the goal of supporting women faculty and graduate students in political science who study political methodology broadly defined (a multi-method approach). In addition to providing a forum to share scholarly work, VIM also serves to connect women in a field where they are under-represented.
The Special Projects Grant will provide support for 15 women faculty to attend the 2019 VIM annual conference and for 10-20 women and members of historically under-represented groups to attend the 2018 Political Methodology VIM pre-conference.
