The Philosophy, Politics, and Economics (PPE) workshop at Brown University is a research seminar designed to cultivate internationally-recognized excellence in interdisciplinary scholarship in the PPE tradition. The focus of the PPE Seminar is to advance research on topics associated with our programs, mainly with a focus on the relationship between institutions and economic, political, and social outcomes. 

The seminar encourages interdisciplinary conversations around important, new research that has significance for the social sciences. Invited speakers present research that is a "work-in progress" and not yet published. We circulate a draft of the paper in advance so that interested participants can read it before the talk. On the day of the talk, the speaker gives a 20 – 30 minute overview of the argument, identifies fruitful areas for discussion, and the floor is then open for discussion.
