PPE Working Paper Series 2022-2023

The Kellogg Center for Philosophy, Politics, and Economics will organize a working paper series this academic year. The series allows PPE Core Faculty, PPE Research Fellows, and PPE Affiliated Faculty members to present some of their work in progress.

The series offers a friendly and constructive intellectual environment for sharing and advancing preliminary research in PPE and is typically combined with, or followed by, a lunch with participants, including interested undergraduate and graduate students.
