By invitation only
This workshop will give PhD students the opportunity to present work in progress to an interdisciplinary audience of faculty and students.
PhD students will present either a dissertation proposal or a draft thesis chapter. All participants (students and faculty) will read all of the submitted papers in advance. Half an hour will be devoted to each paper on each day of the workshop. On April 29, each paper will be introduced by a student discussant, and there will then be open discussion of the paper; the author will not be permitted to speak. On April 30, the author will lead off the discussion with a response to the previous day’s comments and critiques, and then the floor will be opened. Faculty will participate in the discussion on both days, but students will be encouraged to take the lead. The workshop will give students the opportunity to get feedback on their own work, to gain experience of discussing the work of others, and to make connections with students and faculty at other universities.
Pierre Siklos will deliver the keynote address to open the workshop, “What Do Central Banks Talk About?”
