Applications are open for places at the annual Association for Heterodox Economics postgraduate workshop on advanced research methods in economics. 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. We strongly encourage applications from women and ethnically-minoritized groups.

  • Reorienting economics to match method with social material
  • Quantitative analysis applicable to open economic systems
  • Qualitative methods
  • Social network theory in Economics

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

To allow in-person interaction but also retain a broad representation of students, the workshop will be held for the first time in a hybrid format, with some participants in-person and some online. It will be held over three short days, running from 1030-1530 UTC. Please bear in mind these timings: if you cannot realistically attend the whole workshop, please do not apply as you may be reducing the opportunities for others who can.

To apply, please complete the form here. Please complete all sections of the form as fully as you can. Applications will be evaluated in terms of the strength of the case you make for wanting to attend the workshop, and your need to attend (and its potential benefit).

The final deadline for applications is 30 November, 2023. If your application is successful, you will be informed within 10 working days of that date.
