The Department of Statistics of Sapienza University of Rome announces a call for applications for a research fellowship in Economics on "The economic analysis of social classes: the Classical approach". The deadline for applications is December 12, 2013. The full text of the call is retrievable at this url.
Social classes, widely studied by several social sciences, are no longer a tool of economic analysis, at least within the marginalize approach. The project aims at updating and applying the approach to the study of social classes typical of British Classical political economists, integrating it with the most recent insights from the other social sciences.
The main characteristic of the project is the overlapping of methods proper of the history of economic thought, economic theory and empirical analysis. In the applied part, special emphasis will be given to current developments in the EU.
