EIPE Ph.D. Seminars

Current facets (Pre-Master)

General information

Research Masters students will familiarize themselves with the kind of research they would be expected to carry out as Ph.D. students and the process of presenting research papers and providing comments in the formal context of a research seminar.

Research master students are obliged to attend the bi-weekly Ph.D. seminars of the Erasmus Institute for Philosophy and Economics (EIPE) in which other, more advanced second-year research master students and Ph.D. students present their work.

Occasionally they are also required to prepare formal critical comments on presentations. Students are also obliged to attend the bi-weekly EIPE research seminars.

All Ph.D. seminars take place from 17.00-18.00 (or 18.45 in the case of a double session, i.e. two presenters). In case a different time or location applies, you will be notified via the mailing list. If you want to subscribe to the mailing list, please send an e-mail to 386151ag@student.eur.nl (for the year 2017-2018).

About EIPE

It is critically important that work in political philosophy be informed by work in the empirical social sciences, including economics. At the same time, work in economics inevitably raises a number of important philosophical questions, including questions of ethics. There are few places where such interdisciplinary research takes place and fewer still which train students to draw out the connections between philosophy and economics. EIPE is a welcome outlier, a place where inter-disciplinary conversations and research thrives. It was a pleasure to present my work to such a stimulating group of scholars.
