Wednesday Public Choice Seminar

The Seminar Series, now over 35 years old, invites scholars from around the world to share their work in a formal lecture, which is followed by a rigorous question and answer session.

The Fall 2017 seminars will be hosted by Dr. Bryan Caplan and coordinated by admin assistant Lisa Hill-Corley. All papers made available will be posted on this site for downloading. For more information, call the Center: (703) 993-2316.

Seminars will be held from 12 - 1:15pm in Carow Hall, which is on George Mason University's Fairfax campus. A light lunch for seminar participants will be available at 11:45 am.
