Shann Memorial Lecture

To: Wednesday April 27, 2016, 7:45 pm

Economic Models: Facts, Artefact's or Fictions?

Mary S. Morgan is Professor of History and Philosophy of Economics at the London School of Economics and Vice President (Publications) at the British Academy. She also holds a professorial appointment at the University of Amsterdam and is a visiting fellow at the University of Pennsylvania.

Mary’s major area of scholarship is the history of economic and econometric ideas. Her recent award winning book, The World in the Model (Cambridge University Press, 2012), considers modelling as a method of enquiry, the imagining and imaging of economic ideas (to consider the way that images emerge and are developed over time to give form, and greater clarity, to economic thinking), model experiments, the uses of simulations and a range of other issues.


This Shann Memorial Lecture is presented as part of the Economic Society of Australia’s 2016 Eminent Speaker Series. A flyer for this event can be found here - 2016 Shann Memorial Lecture Invitation
