The Economics and Sociology Workshop is a bi-weekly seminar that draws professors, students, and postdocs together to discuss papers that are at the intersection of economic sociology and economics. It is jointly organized by Avinash Dixit of the Economics Department and Viviana Zelizer of the Sociology Department. Papers are distributed approximately one week prior to any particular workshop. Participants are asked to read the paper in advance. All are welcome.
