Applications for the WESSI Workshops in 2018-19 are no longer being accepted. Please check this website in late Spring 2019 for announcements concerning WESSI Workshops in 2019-20.
Each WESSI Workshop aims to give 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. Each will also enable students to attend presentations by these mentors, and learn from their research experience. Each mentor will present their own research and each student will receive feedback from two mentors. Junior scholars who are planning or in the process of doing research in the Middle East region, broadly defined, or who were participants at previous WESSI workshops are especially encouraged to apply, but we are open to scholars working in other regions and new to WESSI as well.
