The Bobst Center for Peace and Justice at Princeton University and the Social Science Experimental Laboratory (SSEL) at New York University Abu Dhabi are hosting the Winter Experimental Social Sciences Institute (WESSI) Workshop at New York University Florence Italy on September 16-17, 2016. This workshop is organized by Rebecca Morton (NYU New York and NYU Abu Dhabi) and Amaney Jamal (Princeton University).

The WESSI Workshop gives social science PhD students, postdoctoral fellows, and junior Assistant Professors in experimental social science the opportunity to present their research designs and work in progress and receive personal feedback from noted scholars in the field. It enables students to attend presentations by these mentors, and learn from their research experience. Each mentor presents their own research and each student receives feedback from two mentors.
