Annual Graduate Student Workshop

June 2-3, 2023

Chapman University

Orange, CA

The Institute for the Study of Religion, Economics, and Society (IRES) invites applications to its Annual Graduate Student Workshop. The workshop is designed primarily for advanced students in economics, sociology & political science, but we welcome proposals from all disciplines.

The Workshop provides two days of intensive instruction, interaction, and feedback for a select group of advanced graduate students. Each student must have a completed paper, and all papers will be circulated and studied in advance. Sessions will center on presentations and discussion, with professors and students giving detailed feedback on each paper.


Applications should include a one page summary and CV. The one page summary should include your name, university affiliation, email, graduate advisor, and a 300-500 word description of your work. Send applications to no later than April 14th, 2023. If you already have a draft of your paper, please include it with your application.


IRES will cover the cost of economy flights, hotel, and meals.
