Categories: News

Graduate students and newly minted PhDs are invited to apply for the 2017 Summer Institute of the Center for the History of Political Economy at Duke University. It will take place over a two week period, from June 4 through June 16, 2017. While the first week, organized by Bruce Caldwell (Duke University), will focus on giving participants the tools to set up and teach their own undergraduate course in the history of economic thought, the second week will be thematic, with Kevin Hoover (Duke University) providing a history of the development of macroeconomics, and Steve Medema (University of Colorado, Denver) presenting a history of economists’ thinking on market failures, from Adam Smith through Ronald Coase and the Chicago School.
