Philosophy, Politics, and Economics Research Seminar

The Philosophy, Politics, and Economics Research Seminar encourages and explores the latest research by scholars. Our PPE Research Seminar is a vehicle for scholars and graduate students to discuss and receive feedback on research.

The PPE Research Seminar is typically held on Fridays from 2 p.m. - 3:30 p.m. in Computing Commons (CPCOM) 480 on the ASU Tempe campus.

If you are interested in presenting your research during the 2019-2020 academic year, please email EconomicLiberty@asu.edu with a brief abstract for review.
