Event history, or duration analysis, is a method that is widely used across social science disciplines – particularly in sociology and political science, and also of interest in history, social policy, demography and economics. Beyond the practicalities of its statistical use, the method is essential for thinking about how social, political and economic processes evolve over time. I have used this method in my research in sociology, social policy, and political science, and the course will draw on interdisciplinary examples. Many important social science questions focus on time, duration, and the probability of event occurrence - the lengths of wars or legal disputes, the failure of cabinets over time, the longevity of alliances or dictatorships, the survival of firms or persons. Event history or survival analysis is a class of statistical techniques that analyzes the probability that an event occurs, how that probability changes over time, and how it is mediated by other factors. Event history analysis is a very coherent method, with a clear progression in how students acquire understanding. We start with the research logic of event history, data structure, nonparametric techniques, and introduction to multivariate survival models. The course will end with a discussion of special topics [competing risks, unobserved heterogeneity]. It is possible for students to master this method at an advanced level within an intensive one-week course. This course provides students with the key concepts and competence to pursue further statistical expertise of this method on their own.The course aims to introduce students to the key concepts of event history, data structure, an overview of parametric, semi-parametric and non-parametric approaches, and a focus on application of these concepts on practice datasets and students’ own data. Each class will consist of a lecture component where we will discuss key concepts, and an applied component where we will analyze data, and implement the concepts from the lecture. There will also be a time for lab-work in the afternoon, where students can work together on problem sets, with aid from the instructor.

The course introduces participants to the theory and practice of teaching in higher education. They can apply what they have learned in practical exercises, for example through individual teaching sessions. This is a block seminar over several days (28 June 2021, 2 - 5:30 pm, 29 June, 9 am - 5:30 pm – with breaks, 30 June, 2 - 5:30 pm & 1 July, 2 - 5:30 pm; plus micro-teaching sessions (of which you must attend at least one) on 5 July, noon - 6 pm & 7 July, noon - 6 pm).

The Hertie School invites PhD researchers to participate in a workshop on European higher education in times of uncertainty. The virtual workshop is organised in cooperation with the Bamberg Graduate School of Social Sciences. From geopolitical tensions, including Brexit, to attacks on academic freedom, as well as an unprecedented disruption to university learning and research through COVID-19, European higher education is currently facing a plethora of challenges. How have European universities responded to this period of uncertainty? What policies have been developed at national and supranational levels of governance in light of political and social developments? This PhD workshop provides an interdisciplinary platform for emerging scholars to share and discuss their research with peers and senior academics. The aim of the workshop is for PhD researchers to present their work in an encouraging environment. We welcome submissions of different theoretical and methodological approaches across social science disciplines. Deadline for applications: 15 April 2021. Please apply by submitting an abstract (300-500 words) and a CV to edu.gov.team[at]hertie-school[dot]org. Applications via the CIVICA course catalogue are not recommended. For all further information, topics and so forth, please visit this website: https://www.hertie-school.org/en/events/15-04-2021-international-phd-workshop

The Covid-19 pandemic has marked a turning point for the digitalisation of public services including education and health. In this context, the EU has pledged its commitment to promote a faster connectivity, and to increase the engagement of civil society. However, the EU still presents various challenges due to the mismatch between the growing demand of technology and the current limited supply – examples are the slow implementation of the 5G network, limited automated mobility, and questionable personal data security regulations. This panel will focus on the challenges and opportunities of the European digital governance and the construction of advanced digital skills in the economy and society.
