YSI pre-conference workshop

As has become tradition, the YSI Philosophy of Economics working group is organising a pre-conference workshop. This time the workshop is "Women in Economics: Past and Present". The workshop is meant to offer an opportunity to take some stock on the progress made so far by women in economics and to address the challenges that still lie ahead. Prof. Diana Strassmann (Rice), founder editor of the journal Feminist Economics has confirmed her participation. As usual, some travel grants are available for young scholars who want to participate in the workshop and conference. Interested scholars should submit their application to the conference website as stated above and send an email to [email protected] indicating that you want to be considered for the grant.

Any questions regarding the workshop and other YSI affairs should be submitted to [email protected]


The deadline for both abstract and symposium proposals submissions is 17 February, 2019. Acceptance will be communicated by the end of March, 2019.
