The Center for the History of Political Economy at Duke University will be hosting another Summer Institute on the History of Economics this summer, June 2-21. The three week program is sponsored by the National Endowment for the Humanities and is designed primarily for faculty members in economics, other social sciences, and the humanities, though three of the twenty-five slots are reserved for graduate students. Participants will be competitively selected and successful applicants will receive a $2700 stipend for attending, out of which they will pay for their own room and board. Our line-up of discussion leaders is pretty impressive, and includes scholars from economics, political science, and history. The deadline for applying is March 4. More information on the Summer Institute is available at our website, http://hope.econ.duke.edu

This is a superb program and I recommend it heartily.

NEH:

Your tax $$ at work!

Restricted to 25 slots.

Remind me again how successful Marginal University is at delivering its courses?

Perhaps someone at Duke needs a bit of vision? Or maybe the NEH needs a nudge.
