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 2021-2022, some brown bags will be held in person and some online. We plan to have in-person seminars as Hyflex, meaning that attendees will be allowed to participate in those seminars online. If you have any questions regarding online access to brown bags, please contact the seminar coordinator, Minjoon Lee.
