The NYC Media Seminar was launched in Fall 2013 to provide a regular forum for economists interested in media markets to connect with each other and to current research on media topics. The seminar is jointly organized by Lisa George at Hunter College and Miklos Sarvary at Columbia Business School and has been generously supported by the Columbia Media Program, the Associated Press, and Google.
The seminar is open to all researchers with access to New York City and draws speakers from across the US and abroad. Seminars are held the first Wednesday of each month during the academic year. Starting in fall 2016 we will meet at Google NYC, 76 Ninth Avenue between 15th and 16th Street. (Note the address: Google occupies several buildings near Chelsea Market).
The sessions begin at 10am with coffee, followed by a 90-minute presentation and discussion. For more information or to RSVP, please contact Lisa George at firstname.lastname@example.org. To stay informed about the series, register for the series listserv by sending an email to mailto:email@example.com with SUBSCRIBE MEDIANYC-L in the e-mail message body (and nothing else).
