Below is a list of currently scheduled guest speakers and for our 2018 guest lecture series at the Center for Behavioral Political Economy.
Unless listed otherwise, all events are held Tuesday afternoons at 3:30 pm. All lecture series are held at the CBPE classroom located in the Department of Political Science on the 7th floor of the Social and Behavioral Sciences Building. Main access to the CBPE classroom (room S-738) is located in the south inner corridor. You may also access the Center through the Decision Experiment Lab (S-736) on days when experiments are not in progress.
Stay tuned, as guest speakers and their speaking topics, as well as additional lecture dates will be updated regularly!
As always, if you are interested in volunteering to present this academic school year, have any recommendations for an outside speaker doing experimental work in the behavioral sciences, or have general questions about the guest lecture series, please contact Peter DeScioli for further information.
