The Institute of New Economic Thinking's Young Scholars Initiative will host a Ph.D. Student Workshop on April 8-9, 2014 in Toronto, ON, Canada, prior to the institute's annual plenary conference. The workshop will consist of mini-courses covering topics and methods that are overlooked in the conventional economics curriculum. Thomas Ferguson and Peter Temin will teach a course on debt and external adjustment in the interwar period; Mariana Mazzucato and Tommaso Ciarli on the economics of innovation; and John Smithin on monetary macroeconomics. The workshop will also feature student presentation sessions, which give Ph.D. candidates the opportunity to present and discuss their research in a collaborative environment.
While the workshop is mainly designed for Ph.D. students, a small number of master students, post-doctoral students, and assistant professors will be admitted as well. The Institute will provide free accommodations and some travel stipends are available.
The deadline for applications is January 31st, 2014. For more information, visit: http://ineteconomics.org/ysi/events/workshop-toronto.
