Moral Economies, Economic Moralities

SASE’s inaugural Early Career Workshop was generously co-sponsored by the Warwick Institute for Employment Research at the University of Warwick and hosted by the Institute for Research on Labor and Employment and the Institute for the Study of Societal Issues at UC Berkeley.

The Early Career Workshop provides additional career development and networking opportunities at SASE for PhD students and researchers having obtained their PhD within 3 years of the annual SASE meeting. It is a one-day workshop that runs the day before the main conference and is hosted by senior SASE professors, including a pre-Workshop evening meal with networking event, sessions on getting published, career development, and an introduction to socio-economics. It will also provide an opportunity for longer and deeper discussion of applicants’ conference papers.

Each Early Career Workshop participant had their full main conference fee waived. Full conference accommodation was also paid, including the additional night of accommodation for the Workshop. Participants received a certificate of participation and were eligible to apply to a Hardship Fund for a contribution to their travel costs to the conference.
