MAY 19 – 24, 2019
We are excited to announce the dates of the second Rudd Summer Adoption Research Institute (SARI), planned for May 19 – 24, 2019, on the campus of the University of Massachusetts Amherst. This summer institute is for graduate students and recent Ph.D.s who are planning careers in adoption research. Topics will include data organization and management, longitudinal analysis, analyzing family and couple-level data, considering culture in adoption research, community engagement, and translation and dissemination of research findings. The methodological topics will be interspersed with discussions of adoption in global perspective, balancing the personal and professional, the history of adoption, research funding, and more. Space is limited; we are using the application process to make sure that each participant is a good fit for the goals of the institute. A cohort of 15- 20 graduate students and recent Ph.D.s will be selected to spend a week together with experienced adoption researchers to build expertise in some of the special methodological and statistical issues inherent in this field.
