As communicated previously in the Newsletter, we are planning to hold a research Jamboree at the end of academic year at Magdalen College. While no week was perfect, the selected week is Week 9 of Trinity Term; this is June 20-24th 2022.
The Jamboree comes during exam season so it may require carefully planning of any marking you have to do. It is not expected that everyone will attend every day of the week with full participation.
The idea is to get together to share ideas and to promote across-field and interdisciplinary research both for the benefits that broader perspectives bring to research, but also to begin to establish communities of scholars ready to apply for significant external research funding.
We will host 5 different sessions over 4 days that week. Rather than comprising purely of the traditional presentation-based workshop format, there will be different forms of interaction and time for discussion and engagement.
The themes that will be covered are:
Monday 20th – Machine learning and Economics – Binta Zahra Diop , Max Kasy
Tuesday 21st – Communication and information – Michael McMahon , Dan Quigley
Thursday 23rd – Gender and Family Economics – Abi Adams-Prassl , Hamish Low , Barbara Petrongolo
Friday 24th (AM) – Economics of Nature Recovery – Alex Teytelboym , Rick van der Ploeg
Friday 24th (PM) – DPhil and Post-doc Celebration and Job Market Preparation – Michael McMahon , Kristina Pikovskaia , Martin Weidner
After the Friday session, we will have the end of term party as chance to gather and celebrate together.
