The 2020 Visions in Methodology (VIM) Program Committee is now accepting proposals for papers for the VIM 2020 Workshop to be held at Claremont Graduate University from October 15 to 17, 2020.

We invite submissions from graduate students and faculty that address measurement, causal inference, and the application of advanced statistical methods to substantive research questions from graduate students and faculty who self-identify as women. The conference meetings will be open to all interested participants regardless of gender identity.

Participants are expected to arrive at CGU by 5:00 pm on October 15. The workshop consists of two days of research presentations and opportunities for networking and mentoring and concludes with a dinner on October 17. VIM offers financial support for travel, lodging, and food for selected participants.

To apply, please upload the title and description of your research project (100 – 150 words) along with a curriculum vita below.


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. Please visit the VIM website for more details:
