Visions in Methodology (VIM) supports women who study political methodology. In addition to providing a forum to share scholarly work, VIM connects women in a field where they are under-represented. VIM provides opportunities for scholarly progress, networking, and professional mentoring in research and teaching in order to support women in the political methodology community. Averaging about 30 participants, VIM's three-day conference feature research presentations and discussions on both methodological and substantive topics.
The 2020 Visions in Methodology (VIM) Workshop will be held at Claremont Graduate University from May 21 to 23, 2020.
The National Science Foundation recently agreed to fund smaller thematic meetings similar in character to the annual summer conference 25 years ago. The Society is accepting proposals for these meetings.
