Southern Economics Association (SEA) 89th Annual Conference

CSWEP (Committee on the Status of Women in the Economics Profession) will be sponsoring professional development panel sessions and paper sessions (gender-related) at the Southern Economics Association Meetings to be held November 23-25, 2019, at the Marriott Harbor Beach Resort, Fort Lauderdale, FL.  There will also be a networking lunch which all economists are welcome to attend.

The deadline to submit a gender-related paper or volunteer to be on a panel is March 22, 2019. All submissions and volunteering should be sent to Ragan Petrie, CSWEP Southern Representative, rpetrie@tamu.edu.

More details below:

1. The professional development panels will be geared towards graduate students and junior faculty and/or towards mid-career faculty.

We are looking for individuals (women and men) who would like to participate as a panelist in either the graduate student/junior or mid-career panels. It is a great opportunity for you to share your experiences and knowledge with others. You can choose the topic you would like to speak on (~5-10 minutes) and we ask that you stay for the question and answer session to follow. These sessions are well attended (and appreciated). 

If you would like to participate in the panel, have specific suggestions regarding the topics to be covered, potential panelists, or other aspects, please submit your comments and ideas to Ragan Petrie (rpetrie@tamu.edu).

2. The paper sessions will be focused on gender-related research. Work using any type of method (e.g. lab experiments, natural experiments, observational data, structural models, etc) is welcomed. Submit a title and abstract to Ragan Petrie (rpetrie@tamu.edu).
