The Section arranges research seminars during the academic year that are attended by interested graduate students and faculty. Typically, a “working paper” written by an outside researcher or by a faculty member is presented and then thoroughly discussed at the meeting. Generally, the majority of the research seminars are led by prominent researchers from other institutions who present the research project on which they are currently engaged. IR graduate students who are “on the market” are encouraged to give a seminar where they can present their job market paper.
Labor seminars are typically on Mondays, 4:15 pm, in 200 Fisher Hall during the fall and spring semesters. The dates and locations may vary, however, and are noted on the seminar schedule.
