Over a dozen FREE lectures on data and methods

We're happy to announce the schedule of the Blalock Lecture Series for the 2020 Summer Program.

Blalock Lectures are an integral part of the ICPSR Summer Program in Quantitative Methods of Social Research. They are presented in the evening from 7:30 to 9 p.m. EDT outside of the regular curriculum. The lecture series is held in honor of Tad Blalock (https://sociology.unc.edu/hubert-morse-blalock-jr/), a distinguished statistician and sociologist who was an Official Representative to the Consortium and a member of its Executive Council.

These lectures are all FREE to join and open to the public. Each lecture will be available via this Zoom link: 2020 Blalock Zoom Webinars.

In addition, each lecture is recorded and will be available on the Summer Program YouTube channel in this playlist: 2020 Blalock Lecture Series
