Text As Data: Theory and Application
June 22 – July 3, 2020
Collegio Carlo Alberto
Piazza Vincenzo Arbarello 8
Turin, Italy

The Empirical Implication of Theoretical Models Summer Institute is a training program, developed in the United States for graduate students and junior faculty, on the development and application of research designs that integrate theoretical models with empirical research with the purpose of advancing our understanding of politics.
The EITM Europe is a similar program, based in Europe and directed by Thomas König of the University of Mannheim, Germany.

The 2020 edition of EITM Europe will take place from 22 June until 3 July 2020 at the Collegio Carlo Alberto in Turin, Italy. It is directed by Thomas König (University of Mannheim) in collaboration with Fabio Franchino (NASP-University of Milan).

The program provides an introduction to the most recent developments in quantitative textual analysis and with a particular focus on linking applications with theory. It starts with basic concepts regarding the theoretical foundations and the statistical evaluation of theoretical models. The courses will be taught by leading scholars in four modules (plus a refresher course).

The faculty includes James Lo (University of Southern California), Thomas Bräuninger (University of Mannheim), Ken Benoit (LSE) and Nicole Baerg (University of Essex). 

The EITM Europe 2020 summer institute is supported by the University of Mannheim, the University of Milan, the Collegio Carlo Alberto, the foundation Compagnia di San Paolo, the Network for the Advancement of Social and Political Studies (NASP), the ECPR Standing Group on Analytical Politics and Public Choice, and the European Political Science Association (EPSA).

Information on financial support for attending the summer school will be advertised in due time. For further information, please contact Margherita Bordignon at This email address is being protected from spambots. You need JavaScript enabled to view it. .
