Dan Carpenter Receives David Collier Award for Qualitative Methods Contributions

July 29, 2011

Professor Dan Carpenter has been awarded the David Collier Mid-Career Achievement Award. Dan is the Allie S. Freed Professor of Government and Director of the Harvard Center for American Politics.

Last year the Consortium for Qualitative Research Methods (the co-host of the Institute for Qualitative and Multi-Method Research) established a new award, the David Collier Mid-Career Achievement Award.  By agreement with CQRM, the award is managed by the APSA Organized Section for Qualitative and Multi-Method Research.

The award honors David Collier’s contributions—through his research, graduate teaching, and institution-building—as a founder of the qualitative and multi-method research movement in contemporary political science. The award will be presented annually to a mid-career political scientist to recognize distinction in methodological publications, innovative application of qualitative and multi-method approaches in substantive research, and/or institutional contributions to this area of methodology.

Congratulations Dan!
