Summer School in Economics and Philosophy in San Sebastian

Deadline: ASAP and not later than 15 June 2015
Open to: international Masters/PhD students and other researchers
Venue: 6-8 July 2015, San Sebastian, Spain


The Centre for Humanities Engaging Science and Society (CHESS) has opened a call for application for Macroeconomics, Microfoundations, and Evidence-Based Social Policy: A Summer School in Economics and Philosophy. The Summer Schools aim to bring together graduate students with scholars from economics, philosophy and neighbouring disciplines in order to exchange ideas, build a community and help to further establish ‘economics and philosophy’ as an independent and diverse research field consisting of economic methodology, history of economic thought, rational choice theory, ethical aspects of economics, and the intersections of these areas. They are meant to complement other events in the area of ‘Economics and Philosophy’, such as the annual International Network for Economic Method (INEM) research conference in that it provides an outlet to attract beginning graduate students to the philosophy of economics and offers a much-needed opportunity for graduate training in this highly diverse field. The Summer Schools focus on graduate student instruction. Invited scholars will give short courses on topics they specialise in and that fall within the confines of economics and philosophy broadly construed. The short courses will feature mixture of lecture-style and seminar-style formats, and additional panel discussions as well as training sessions will round off the programme.


The Summer School is open to Masters/PhD students and other researchers at various stages of progress on their dissertation project or academic careers.


The registration fee for the Summer School is €100. This will cover teaching material as well as lunches and coffee breaks during the event. There are bursaries to help with accommodation expenses in San Sebastián. If you are interested in applying for a bursary, please make a note in your registration letter.

How to apply?

The deadline for applications is 15 June 2015. To apply please send a short CV and motivation statement to Anna de Bruyckere to [email protected]. Applications will be accepted as they come in, so to be guaranteed a place please apply as soon as possible. Student presentations are being also considered. Whether or not this will fit the programme will depend upon interest and final schedules. If you would be interested to give a brief presentation of your own work, please indicate so in your application.
