This is an outstanding program and I would strongly encourage anyone interested in economics, political economy and social philosophy to apply. I would strongly encourage PhD fellows at GMU and our Adam Smith Fellows to see if the program fits into your schedule.
Here is a description from Bruce Caldwell:
The Center for the History of Political Economy at Duke University will be hosting another Summer Institute on the History of Economics this
summer from June 4 - 16, 2017. The program is designed for students in graduate programs in economics, though students in graduate school in
other fields as well as newly minted PhD's will also be considered. Students will be competitively selected and successful applicants will
receive free housing and reading materials. The deadline for applying is March 3. Travel stipends for those coming from afar will be considered
on a case by case basis.
We are very excited about this year's two week program, which has a somewhat different format from other years. The first week Bruce
Caldwell will be the sole lecturer, and will present a mini-history of economic thought class, providing both content and tips on how to set up
such a course. The second week is thematic. Steve Medema will present a history of the concept of market failure, and Kevin Hoover will present
a history of macroeconomics. Applicants may sign up for either week, or both.
