Program

2018 Summer Institute
History of Economics

There will be 2 sessions a day. The morning sessions, when the more senior scholars will present their work and lead discussions, are from 9:30-12:30, with a break half way through. The afternoon sessions, when the more junior scholars will present, run from 2:00 to either 5:00 or 6:00 pm depending on the number of papers. There will be a short break (5-10 minutes) halfway through the afternoon session. There will be a welcome dinner the evening before the Institute begins. There will be no afternoon session on Sunday, so participants should plan to depart Sunday afternoon. Duke is about a half an hour from the airport, so flights leaving after around 2 pm on Sunday should pose no problems.
