Upcoming Events

Duke Economics encourages collaboration among faculty and students, as well as with the larger research community at Duke, the Triangle area, and beyond. To help facilitate and foster these relationships, the department organizes at least 16 events — workshops and lunch groups — per week during the academic year. Workshops typically bring in external speakers to present papers that are near completion. Lunch groups offer a less formal forum for internal presenters — usually students — to present their works-in-progress. Both workshops and lunch groups are broken down by field. Duke Economics also hosts conferences, economics jamborees for young economists, and visiting scholars through the ERID Visitors Program. Outside of Duke Economics, faculty and students attend events such as the Fuqua Finance Seminar, Triangle Health Economics Workshop, and Triangle Resources and Environmental Economics Seminar.
