PPE Research Fellow Panel: Economic Theory, Inequality, and Oppression @ Virtual
Mar 10 @ 4:00 pm – 5:30 pm

At this panel, current PPE Research Fellows David Bieri, Melinda Miller, and Phillipp Yaure will discuss their fascinating work on the history of economic thought, economic inequality, and inclusive citizenship.

Dr. Bieri’s research engages with August Loesch’s theory of spatial economics and liberal democracy, Dr. Miller’s work explores the relationship between institutions and economic inequality, and Dr. Yaure’s research develops a republican theory of citizenship that counteracts oppression and fosters inclusiveness.

Join us for an informal, but intellectually rich discussion. All faculty and students are welcome to attend. Here is the Zoom link for the meeting: https://virginiatech.zoom.us/j/89794314554
