GU4043: Workshop on Wealth and Inequality | T. Diprete

Center for the Study of Wealth and Inequality at the Institute for Social and Economic Research Policy in partnership with the Department of Sociology
Graduate and Advanced Undergraduate Workshop
Th 2-4PM

The Center for the Study of Wealth and Inequality (CWI) Seminar Series is sponsored by the Institute for Social and Economic Research Policy (ISERP) and is devoted to the investigation of social and economic inequality. The Seminar invites speakers from both within and outside of Columbia to present recent papers covering a wide range of topics pertaining to inequality, such as poverty, labor market behavior, education, and the family. The research topics and methodologies are at the cutting edge of the interdisciplinary study of wealth and inequality, as the CWI Seminar invites speakers from multiple social science disciplines and fields.

The Center for Wealth and Inequality (CWI) Student Workshop is a forum for students interested in social science topics broadly related to inequality. In particular, it will provide an opportunity for students to read and discuss the works presented in the weekly CWI Seminar Series, while also sharing and refining their own works in progress.

The Student Workshop will provide a context for deeper engagement with the work presented each week at the CWI Seminar and with works-in-progress authored by workshop members. CWI Seminars are held each Thursday throughout the academic year at 2pm in 509 Knox Hall. Student Workshops will be held directly after the CWI Seminar. Professors Tom DiPrete and Sy Spilerman will serve as the faculty advisors.

Prerequisites: This is meant for graduate students, however, if you are an advanced undergraduate student you can email the professor for permission to enroll.
