2023 Postgraduate workshop

Online postgraduate workshop on advanced research methodsFREE OF COST

25th-27thApril 2023

Applications are open for places at the annual Association for Heterodox Economics postgraduate workshop on advanced research methods in economics. The workshop covers topics in research not typically covered in economics training. The workshop will be conducted in English.

The workshop is open to anyone studying a Ph.D. on any economic topic, from anywhere in the world.

Please do not apply if you are not currently registered on a PhD programme. Students who have previously attended are not eligible to apply.

Last year we held the workshop entirely online over three short days, running from 1030-1530 UTC+1. This format was well-received by participants and allowed us to invite more of them. For these reasons, we are again holding the workshop online.

Please bear in mind the timings: if you cannot realistically attend the whole workshop, please do not apply as you may be reducing the opportunities for others who can.

Learning in our interactive sessions will be supported by pre-reading and dedicated video recordings by leading scholars.

Workshop topics include:

  • Reorienting economics to match method with social material
  • Quantitative analysis applicable to open economic systems
  • Qualitative methods
  • Social network theory in Economics
  • Mixing quantitative and qualitative data and mixed-methods research
  • Publishing work which uses non-standard methodologies
