[LAST CALL] Pre-Alahpe Workshop (Nov, 19th): Women in the Hist of LA Econ.

The History of Economic Thought and the Philosophy of Economics working groups are organising the Second pre-ALAHPE INET-YSI workshop. The workshop will take place at Universidade Federal do ParanĂ¡ in Curitiba, Brasil, on November 19th, one day before the Conference of the Latin American Association for the History of Economic Thought (ALAHPE).

The goal of the workshop is to discuss the methods, sources, and epistemological challenges involved in assessing the role of female economists in the history of Latin American economics. The workshop will be divided in sessions which will be dedicated to young scholars presenting their research and a presentation leaded by Dr. VerĂ³nica Montecinos, professor of Sociology at the Pennsylvania State University.
