IRS Seminars and Workshops

Labor Economics Seminar

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, 1:20pm, in the Julis Romo Rabinowitz Building, Room 217 during the fall and spring semesters. The dates and locations may vary, however, and are noted on the seminar schedule.

 

UPDATE as of August 25

We have transitioned back to regular in-person sessions for both weekly events. 

Masking Update

We request that participants continue to wear a mask when in attendance. You may take your mask off while eating, drinking, and speaking. Fully vaccinated presenters are not required to wear a mask during their presentation. Clear masks are available to speakers and participants upon request. 

Please contact Indy (ig3989@princeton.edu) for any questions.

Graduate Labor Workshops

The Section also arranges graduate labor workshops (or labor lunches) during the year on Thursdays at 12pm ET in the Louis A .Simpson International Building, Room 271. These are given generally by graduate students who have a work in progress that they would like to present or discuss in order to receive feedback, especially from Section faculty. Occasionally a faculty member or researcher from another institution may also present a paper.

Generally these workshops are open to members of the Section and the wider Economics  Department, and any other faculty the student may wish to invite. On occasion these sessions are held in a smaller format for the student and Section faculty to allow for more focused  feedback and discussion.  Please contact Valerie Ching if you wish to be added to the workshop invitation list.
