1st Annual Summer School on Socioeconomic Inequality (SSSI 2012)
University of Chicago, US

Scholarship / Financial aid: room and board will be provided to participants

Date: July 9-15, 2012

Deadline: April 15, 2012

Open to: PhD candidates from around the world

Announcement follows

We are delighted to announce the 1st Annual Summer School on Socioeconomic Inequality (SSSI 2012), to be hosted by the University of Chicago from July 9-15, 2012 under the direction of Steven N. Durlauf and James J. Heckman. SSSI 2012 is supported by the Institute for New Economic Thinking Human Capital and Economic Opportunity Global Working Group and the Becker-Friedman Institute for Research in Economics.

This summer school is designed to provide state-of-the-art overviews of different aspects of the study of inequality. While no summer school can cover inequality in all its dimensions, this first summer school and its successors will examine areas that are essential to understanding inequality and human flourishing in a comprehensive fashion. Our intention is to provide an intensive one-week experience that teaches the tools needed to study inequality as well as communicates a sense of the research frontier in understanding inequality. The teaching of tools is of particular importance as efforts to integrate richer psychological and sociological foundations of human behavior into conventional economic models require new methods that in some cases are not conventionally taught in graduate programs. Further, SSSI 2012 and future summer schools intend to break down barriers between theoretical, econometric and empirical work.

2012 Lecturers and Topics:

Pierre-Andre Chiappori, Columbia University, Families and Inequality

P. Dean Corbae, University of Wisconsin, Market Incompleteness and Inequality

Steven Durlauf, University of Wisconsin, Social Interactions

James Foster, George Washington University, Measuring Inequality

James Heckman, University of Chicago, Early Childhood Development

Scott Kominers, University of Chicago, Market Design Approaches to Inequality

Rachel Kranton, Duke University, Identity and Inequality
Lance Lochner, University of Western Ontario, Education and Inequality

Burton Singer, University of Florida, Abduction: Modes of Inference, Examples, and Evolving Bases of Causal Attribution

Lones Smith, University of Wisconsin, The Economics of Matching

In addition to two formal presentations by each lecturer, informal talks, paper presentations, and poster sessions will be scheduled; students are strongly encouraged to make presentations of work in progress.


The summer school is open to PhD candidates from around the world. There is no cost to participate, and room and board will be provided to participants. Students are expected to meet their individual transportation costs. The admitted class will be restricted to 25-30 students. Applications may be submitted at the summer school website and are due April 15, 2012.
