New series of AMCIS Seminars
In fall 2017, AMCIS will organize a seminar series with international scholars who work on various topics related to inequality. The presenters will talk about a recent (empirical) research project that they are working on, after which there is room for discussion. The seminars are mostly on Thursdays from 13.00-14.00, but this fall’s schedule is more scattered than previous series. We would be happy to welcome you!
