Summer 2012 China Multigenerational Panel Dataset class at SJTU

The Shanghai Jiaotong University Center for the History and Society of Northeast China was established as a research unit by a collaboration of the Shanghai Jiaotong University (SJTU) School of the Humanities and the Hong Kong University of Science and Technology (HKUST) School of the Humanities and Social Sciences. The Center's second summer school will be held from July 6 to July 20. The class will focus on the use of the China Multigenerational Panel Dataset - Liaoning (CMGPD-LN) for the study of demography, stratification, and social and family history. It will also preview a new dataset, the China Multigenerational Panel Dataset -- Shuangcheng (CMGPD-SC) that we plan to release in 2013. HKUST Distinguished Professor and Dean of Humanities and Social Sciences advises on the organization and content course. UCLA Professor of Sociology Cameron Campbell will lecture. If any non-Chinese speakers enroll, the lectures will be in English, otherwise lectures may be in Chinese.

*More information*, including instructions for applying to the course, is available online.
