SBEE Seminar Series

The Social, Behavioral and Experimental Economics Seminar Series brings together a coherent and vital community of economics scholars whose research aims to broaden our understanding of the social, economic, and political consequences of real-life decisions and behaviors.

Because of the COVID-19 pandemic, this year we run the seminar remotely as a webinar. Subscribe to our mailing list to receive Zoom invitations and login information.

This seminar series is organized jointly by Professors Yan Chen (UMSI), Alain Cohn (UMSI), Erin Krupka (UMSI), Steve Leider (Ross), David Miller (Econ), Yesim Orhun (Ross), and Tanya Rosenblat (UMSI). Todd Stuart serves as seminar coordinator.
