ANNOUNCEMENT & CALL FOR PAPERS

You are invited to share your research and to learn about the work being done by other macroeconomists at liberal arts colleges. The primary goals of this workshop are:

1) to create an open forum that allows macroeconomists at liberal arts colleges to expose their work to a group of their peers and gain valuable feedback; and,

2) to build a network of colleagues with whom to share ideas and collaborate on research projects.

This workshop is being supported by funding from the National Science Foundation (NSF).

We invite faculty to submit paper proposals in the fields of:

  • Macroeconomics
  • Monetary economics
  • Fiscal policy
  • Open-economy macro
  • Growth
  • International finance

Submissions from junior faculty are particularly encouraged. An evening panel discussion on August 7th will explore “Strategies for combining good-quality research and teaching”.

If you are interested in submitting a paper to present, please send the following information (in MS Word or PDF format) to la-macro@smith.edu:

  • the title of your paper
  • an abstract (approximately one page)
  • the name, affiliation, and contact information of the author(s) and
  • fields (from the list above) for which you would be willing to act as a discussant

Submission deadline is May 1st.

Authors will be notified of acceptance by May15th. Final drafts are due July 25th and will be posted on the workshop website in advance of the workshop.

If you would like to serve as a discussant, please send the following information by May 15th:

  • the name, affiliation, and contact information of the author(s) and
  • fields (from the list above) for which you would be willing to act as a discussant

Paper discussants will be selected from institutions other than the author’s to facilitate intercollegiate contacts. We also welcome those who would like to attend the workshop but not present or discuss a paper. Please notify us by July 7th if you plan to attend the conference.
