Seminar Series

The Department of Economics offers weekly External and Internal Seminar Series in the fall and winter terms.

Our external speakers represent a variety of economics specializations and reflect the broad range of research interests of the department. Our internal speakers also cover a variety of topics – everything from pedagogical options to faculty research in progress.

All faculty and graduate students are welcome to attend any of the seminars. 

The seminars for Winter 2022 will be offered through a combination of remote and in-person delivery.
