Eminent Speaker Series 2016
Eminent Speaker 2016: Professor Mary S Morgan
We are delighted to announce that Professor Mary S. Morgan has accepted the Society’s invitation to be our Eminent Speaker for 2016. Mary Morgan is Professor of History and Philosophy of Economics at the London School of Economics and Vice President (Publications) at the British Academy.
She also holds a professorial appointment at the University of Amsterdam and is a visiting fellow at the University of Pennsylvania. Her major area of scholarship is the history of economic and econometric ideas. Her recent award winning book, The World in the Model (Cambridge University Press, 2012), considers modelling as a method of enquiry, the imagining and imaging of economic ideas (to consider the way that images emerge and are developed over time to give form, and greater clarity, to economic thinking), model experiments, the uses of simulations and a range of other issues.
Mary will be in Australia during April, encompassing Perth, Melbourne, Hobart, Sydney and Canberra. The itinerary to date can be accessed by clicking the link below.
