Andrew Barber, a current PPE Student Ambassador, will present a paper at the XII. Conference of the International Network for Economic Method (INEM) in Cape Town, South Africa, November 19-22, 2015. The keynote speakers of the conference include Nancy Cartwright (Durham University, formerly London School of Economics) and Glenn Harrison (C.V. Starr Chair in Risk Management and Insurance, Georgia State University).
The Program in Philosophy, Politics, and Economics at Virginia Tech will host its first annual PPE Distinguished Public Lecture in the fall semester 2016 and seeks nominations from students and faculty for the speaker of the event.
The PPE Distinguished Public Lecture aims to foster dialogue among students, faculty, and the general public about core problems that our contemporary societies face. The speaker will be a distinguished scholar of international reputation whose research cuts across the disciplinary boundaries of philosophy, political science, and economics and has significant social relevance, including in areas such as business, engineering, public policy, and environmental conservation.
Please submit your speaker nominations for the PPE Distinguished Public Lecture by December 09, 2015, to Professor Michael Moehler (firstname.lastname@example.org).
The PPE Distinguished Public Lecture is supported by the Department of Philosophy, the Department of Political Science, and the Department of Economics, as well as the College of Liberal Arts and Human Sciences and the College of Science at Virginia Tech.
