Ann Davis has blogged on her recent URPE at ASSA panel on class. This panel was part of URPE’s new effort at interdisciplinary collaboration.  (January 26, 2015)

The first Washington DC URPE meeting in several years was held January 15 at the Martin Luther King Public Library in downtown DC.  Attending were Erin George, Hood College, Steve Rose, George Washington University, Greg Bischak, Treasury Department, Nancy Breen, National Institutes of Health,  and Lane Vanderslice, World Hunger Education Service.  Participants shared what they were doing, including Rose’s participation in a recent EPS/ASSA  panel on inequality.  Much of the discussion centered around the state of progressive ideas, especially in DC, and what an URPE Washington group might do, including  having a joint meeting with local Occupy members.

On January 22, "Tan Cerca Tan Lejos. A Voice of Mexico in the USA" will talk with Juan Carlos Moreno-Brid, the Deputy Director ECLAC (United Nations) Mexico Regional Office. Tan Cerca Tan Lejos ​​is a bilingual radio program (Spanish and English) transmitted by radio from the University of Massachusetts, Amherst, and one of the sponsors is the economics department. It can be heard online either as a live or archived broadcast.
