As mentioned in an earlier post, I have had the privilege to be one of the founders and first organiser of LSE’s Quantitative Methods Reading Group. The Reading Group’s first academic year has just concluded, and with twelve fascinating articles and discussions under its belt, it goes on a well-deserved summer vacation. I collated all the literature chosen throughout the year, it is worth a browse:
During Lent term, I have been one of the GTAs (i.e., Graduate Teaching Assistants) for MY457, or Causal Inference in Experimental and Observational Studies. As wonderfully inquisitive LSE students are, they have been asking me for further readings on the methods we have been discussing throughout the course. I thought that it might make sense to list some recurring suggestions I have made to them, if for nothing else, for a quick reference to anyone taking the course (or otherwise interested in the topics covered by it).
This is just a quick announcement: with other quant people at Department of Methodology at LSE, we have just started the Quantitative Methods Reading Group. This will be a fortnightly group for PhD students where we can discuss papers on/using advanced quantitative methods from different disciplines in the social sciences. Further details and up-to-date information on the upcoming meetings can be found on the Reading Group’s website.
Should you be interested, please do not hesitate to get in touch, I am happy to add you to the Reading Group’s newsletter.
