New York City Media Seminar

We have a new venue!  After three years at the Associated Press, we are looking forward to meeting this year at Google.  Details below.  Seminars are held the first Wednesday of each month during the academic year.  As always, the sessions begin at 10am with coffee, followed by a 90-minute presentation and discussion.

The goal of the seminar is to link economists in the greater New York area working on media topics by providing a regular forum to connect with media research in economics, marketing and beyond.  The seminar is open to all researchers with access to New York City and draws speakers from across the US and abroad. 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 fall lineup is as follows:
  • October 5, 2016: Neil Gandal (University of Tel Aviv)
  • November 2, 2016: Hanna Halaburda (Bank of Canada)
  • December 7, 2016: Simon Anderson (University of Virginia)

We will circulate the full schedule with links to papers in the coming weeks.  Past and present schedules with links to papers can be found here and here.

Starting this fall we will meet at Google, 76 Ninth Avenue between 15th and 16th Street.  Note the address, as Google occupies several buildings near Chelsea Market.  Enter on the east side of the avenue near 15th and stop at the security desk.  Please RSVP to Lisa George at lisa.george@hunter.cuny or to Miklos Sarvary miklos.sarvary@gsb.columbia.edu to expedite check-in.
