The Economic and Political Sociology (EPS) workshop strives to build a community of graduate students and faculty who share an interest in political economy, development, the state and state policies, economic sociology, labor and social movements, and related topics. Participants present work-in-progress (research papers, dissertation proposals, dissertation or book chapters, etc.) before the workshop for constructive criticism. We will meet in the Memorial Room (4130) on Mondays from 12:30-2:00pm.
