Weekly Behavioural Economics Reading Group
We are writing to you today to let you know of a new Behavioural Economics Reading Group that has begun in the economics department, and to invite you all to participate in our upcoming meetings! We are hoping to make this a truly interdisciplinary group, bringing together students in WBS, economics, and the psychology department to broaden our perspectives on behavioural research. The group will cover academic papers in topics including but not limited to behavioural and empirical economics, cognition, decision making, marketing, and organizational behaviour.
What: In our meetings, we will read and present both seminal and more recent papers in psychology, business and economics to learn the current state of the literature. We will send out an email in advance notifying participants who will be presenting in our next meeting and the paper that will be presented to allow people a chance to read it in advance. We also hope to host seminar sessions with professors from both Warwick and other institutions on their current research.
When: (TBA) The schedule of the meetings will be decided altogether based on everyone's availability. We will share a link to Google Sheet where you can indicate your availability.
Where: For the duration of Term 1 meetings will be hybrid. When restrictions lift during Term 2 we will look to hold our meetings fully in person, depending on the comfort level of the group’s members.
Commitment: There is no requirement to attend every session or to present a paper, although both are encouraged. If you have a specific paper that you would like the group to discuss, we will always be open to suggestions in the Teams channel or via email (email@example.comLink opens in a new window).
