School of Economics

Events and Seminars

The School of Economics runs a series of seminars and workshops through the year, some of which are for a generalist audience and some of which relate to the more specialist interests of the school's research centres. 

We also run regular public lectures which everyone can to attend.

Senior Academic Seminar Series

The Senior Academic Seminar is the principal regular research event in the school's calendar, distinct from the range of themed workshops and research centre seminars run each week during the academic term. Seminars are on Zoom and normally held Wednesday 3 to 4.30pm unless stated otherwise.

Upcoming seminars

There are currently no upcoming seminars.

Master Classes and Expert Workshops

The Master Classes and Expert Workshops series are for postgraduate research students but they will be of interest to early-career and other academics.

The series typically consists of three or four masterclasses or workshops each semester taking place on occasional Wednesdays 1 to 5pm.

The sessions cover specific research methods in some detail and at an advanced level. Master classes are often based on a research project and give insights on the thinking behind the work and how the research evolved. The sessions describe the process of how to do research as well as hearing about the work itself. The Expert Workshops are more focused sessions covering specific tools and techniques that can be used in research in Economics and in Social Science more generally.

Relatedly, we also run a series of Twilight Sessions for PGR students on occasional Wednesday evenings (5 to 6pm) discussing some of the generic/soft skills developed by economists during a research degree.
