About the Workshop

The Social Theory and Evidence Workshop (affectionately dubbed STEW) is a forum for the presentation and discussion of original social scientific research and a venue for sharing information and advice regarding graduate student professionalization in the field of social science research. STEW broadly services the social sciences; it is housed in Sociology but has no single topical or methodological commitment. Rather, it is a space where empirical social scientists with very different substantive and methodological experiences can come together to present and discuss original research.

STEW is a presentation-based workshop. Each week a the presenter gives a 20-45 minute talk followed by Q&A with the audience. This makes STEW an ideal venue for practicing job talks or conference presentations.


Our student coordinator is Timothy B. Elder. You can find this quarter’s schedule¬†here.
