Quantitative Spatial Economics Junior Workshop
An Online Spatial Economics Seminar Series organized by Clare Balboni and Fabian Eckert and sponsored by The Woodrow Wilson School and the Princeton International Economics Section.

The schedule is as follows:

May 29: Nick Tsivanidis
Spatial Spillovers from Urban Renewal: Evidence from the Mumbai Mills Redevelopment

June 5: Milena Almagro
Location Sorting and Endogenous Amenities: Evidence from Amsterdam

The seminars last 75 minutes:

60 minutes of presentation and 15 minutes of Q&A.

A moderator collects audience questions in the chat window. Users can upvote questions asked by others. Clarifying questions get asked by the moderator during the talk. After the talk the moderator selectively unmutes attendees to ask questions asked in the Q&A chat window.

Besides this, all attendees are muted throughout, and all interactions with the speaker are going through the chat with the moderator. Attendees engaging in abusive behavior or disturbing the seminar will be removed from the seminar.

Seminars will be recorded and available on youtube a few days later. Please note that you may be recorded if you activate your video or speak during the seminar.
