Carroll Round XVIII Extends a Call for Papers from Undergraduates at University of California at San Diego

My name is Yi Bao; as the Recruitment Chair for the 18th Carroll Round Steering Committee, I would like to invite all interested students at University of California at San Diego to apply to this year’s Carroll Round conference. The Carroll Round is an undergraduate international economics conference at Georgetown University, which provides a unique forum for the world’s best undergraduate students studying international economics and political economy to present and discuss their original research. At the conference, undergraduates will have an unparalleled opportunity to engage in an academic environment and converse with world-renowned economists in an intimate setting. In addition, all the accepted papers will have the chance to be published in the Carroll Round Proceedings.

 

This year’s conference, which will be held April 11th through 14th, 2019, will bring together participants, prominent academics, and policy-makers in presentations, discussions, and speeches. We hold keynote lectures and events throughout the weekend to provide attendees with opportunities to hear from eminent economists. Last year, we were honored to host Nobel Laureate Dr. George Akerlof and the World Bank’s Dr. Augusto Lopez-Claros. Previous keynote speakers also include Susan Athey, Ben Bernanke, John Nash, Rajiv Shah, and Joseph Stiglitz. A full list of our past speakers can be found here.

 

We are currently seeking submissions of journal-length articles to be submitted by a priority deadline of February 7th, 2019. We intend to release acceptances on a rolling basis ending March 21st, 2019. We encourage all undergraduates conducting original research to submit their articles (though works in progress and detailed abstracts are also welcomed).

 

Since the Carroll Round’s inception, we have underscored the importance of international economics research. Although this theme remains the focus, this year we are also willing to consider exemplary papers on other topics in economics. That being said, we may request such papers include an international component within the scope of their presentations. For instance, if an article is about the U.S. education system, it should include additional insight on the implications for countries with similar systems.

 

On behalf of the Steering Committee, I request that you forward this letter to all interested undergraduate students and faculty advisors of research-oriented economics courses, and encourage them to apply for this year’s Carroll Round. For more information on the financial reimbursement and application process, please visit our website.

POLI 100W: POLITICS, POLICY, AND EDUCATIONAL INEQUALITY

POLI 100W: POLITICS, POLICY, AND EDUCATIONAL INEQUALITY

Winter 2019 | Tue & Thu 9:30-10:50am | WLH 2113

 

Prof. Agustina Paglayan

 

Department of Political Science and School of Global Policy and Strategy

 

Education is often thought of as “the great equalizer,” but in the United States (and around the world), many governments fail to ensure that all citizens have access to high-quality educational opportunities. Why? This course will give students analytical tools from political science and economics to understand (a) how education policy decisions affect the quality and equity of education systems, and (b) how education policy decisions are made. Emphasis is on the United States but analyzed in comparative perspective. Considerable attention will be placed on understanding how politics and local, state, and federal K-12 education policy in the United States increase or reduce educational disparities between whites and racial minorities, and between individuals from high- and low-income families.POLI100W_Syllabus Winter 2019_Paglayan_Nov8
