Empirical Implications of Theoretical Models in Political Science, Dr. Jim Granato and Dr. Sunny Wong, November 3|4, 2022

Posted on Saturday, Oct 22, 2022
Tension has long existed in the political and social sciences between quantitative and qualitative approaches on one hand, and theory-minded and empirical techniques on the other. The latter divide has grown sharper in the wake of new behavioral and experimental perspectives that draw on both sides of these modeling schemes. We propose to address this disconnect by establishing a framework for methodological unification: empirical implications of theoretical models (EITM). This framework connects behavioral and applied statistical concepts, develops analogues of these concepts, and links and evaluates these analogues. We offer detailed explanations of how these concepts may be framed to assist researchers interested in incorporating EITM into their own research. We also demonstrate how EITM can be put into practice for a range of political and social science questions. Slides
