The workshop will bring together scholars working on state-of-the-art measurement techniques on things that are difficult to measure to share best practices. Speakers will present on studies to elicit attitudes, social norms, cognitive abilities, and behaviors that people prefer to hide, that are prone to social desirability bias, or that people are simply not aware of (e.g., social norms related to domestic violence, stereotypes and out-group biases across hostile groups, and dishonesty).
The workshop is open to faculty and graduate students at the University of Oxford, but spaces are limited. All student requests to attend will be processed on a first-come, first-serve basis. A small number of additional spots may be given to students who volunteer to help welcome guests and take notes for the roundtable sessions.
