The Department of Economics “brown bag” seminar series is a forum for the informal presentation of both research in progress by faculty, visiting scholars, and Ph.D. students and the research ideas of others by faculty and Ph.D. students for discussion purposes.

During the academic year of 2020-2021, the brown bag seminars will be online. A zoom link for the seminars will be included in the seminar newsletter that will be sent out a week before the talks. If you want to be added to the seminar newsletter mailing list, please send an email to the coordinator.
