Faculty present works in progress, especially early-stage microeconomic research and papers, at this internal lunchtime workshop.

Please contact James Kiselik if you would like to be added to the listserv for weekly updates. Please refer to the weekly announcement for updates and time changes.

This convening is open to all invitees regardless of vaccination status and, because of ongoing health risks, particularly to the unvaccinated, participants are expected to adopt the risk mitigation measures (masking and social distancing, etc.) appropriate to their vaccination status as advised by public health officials or to their individual vulnerabilities as advised by a medical professional. Public convening may not be safe for all and carries a risk for contracting COVID-19, particularly for those unvaccinated. Participants will not know the vaccination status of others and should follow appropriate risk mitigation measures.
