The tenth seminar in the Department of Economics Seminar Series for the Fall 2017 term is Friday, 11/10/17. The seminars are open to everyone and are held in the Behavioral Sciences building, room 103, at 3:00pm.
This week’s speaker is CSU’s own Professor Elissa Braunstein. Braunstein is an Associate Professor in the Department of Economics and Editor at Feminist Economics. She received her Ph.D. in economics from the University of Massachusetts Amherst, and a Master of Pacific International Affairs from the School of International Relations and Pacific Studies at the University of California San Diego. Braunstein returned to CSU for the Fall 2017 semester after working for two years as a senior economist at the United Nations Conference for Trade and Development (UNCTAD). This semester she is teaching two sections of ECON 211, Gender in the Economy.
Professor Braunstein’s talk will be on “The policy and substance of [her] work at UNCTAD”.
In the talk, she will give a short overview of the organizational dynamics at UNCTAD, what it is like doing feminist heterodox macroeconomics in that context, and present some recent work that emerged from her time there.
