EGC hosts a number of weekly events for the Yale community, as well as conferences, guest lectures, and our flagship annual Simon Kuznets Memorial Lecture.
This workshop is designed as a forum for graduate students and faculty with an interest in economic problems of developing countries. Faculty, students, and a limited number of outside speakers will discuss research work in progress.
The Development Lunch is an informal workshop designed primarily for graduate students working in development economics to present research in progress. Faculty and visitors also use the workshop to present work in its early stages.
Economic History Workshop
The weekly workshop in economic history is a central part of the program. Speakers include Yale faculty and graduate students as well as distinguished scholars from other institutions. Papers are normally available in advance, and we emphasize informal discussion of the paper.
Economic History Lunch
The weekly economic history lunch provides an informal setting for graduate students, postdocs, and faculty to exchange comments on work in progress. To keep the discussions informal, we do not allow PowerPoint or the equivalent, but presenters may distribute handouts to accompany their talks.
