Greer Seminar Series

The Greer Seminar series allows Haslam faculty and graduate students to meet world-class economists. It provides an opportunity to see the latest advances in research before they have been formally published and provides exposure for our department.

Topics addressed in the Greer Seminar Series have varied from how football upsets cause intimate partner violence, to the development of new statistical techniques for exploring income inequality.

Unless otherwise noted, the seminar is typically held at 3:30 p.m. in Stokely Management Center, 701.
