MinE Best Paper Award 2022 - Conversation with Researchers (Second Session)
In the first edition of the MinE Best Paper Award, the paper Gender Typicality and Sexual Minority Labor Market Differentials, co-authored by Ian Burn and Michael E. Martell, was given a special mention by the Award Committee.
The Award Committee wrote: The paper is an innovative study with a surprising result. They study whether "gender typicality" - a continuous measure they construct to quantify masculinity/femininity - affects labor market outcomes (it does), and whether it drives gaps by sexual orientation (it does not). That is, masculinity affects labor market outcomes of both men and women, but does not explain the labor market differentials experienced by sexual minorities.
The paper was recently awarded the inaugural CSQIEP Award for Outstanding Research Paper in LGBTQ+ Economics (AEA)
Join Ian and Michael virtually on Wednesday, February 15 at 14:30 CET for a conversation about the path they take on producing this award winning paper. Session will be chaired by Sulin Sardoschau. CLICK HERE TO JOIN SESSION.
MinE Best Paper Award 2022 - Conversation with Researchers (First session)
The 2022 MinE Best Paper Award was presented in August to Federico Ricca and Francesco Trebbi for their research Minority Underrepresentation in US Cities.
The motivation given:
They establish that, in U.S. city politics, minority voters were strategically underrepresented through the manipulation of institutions. Their research is timely, and their findings based on clean identification of the causal effect from a narrow Supreme Court decision that removed federal preclearance requirements for some U.S. jurisdictions. The paper has immense policy significance as their uncovering of institutional linkages suggests important, indirect consequences of local reforms, and also opens doors for future research, especially in political economy.
On Wednesday, January 11 at 17:00 CET Federico & Francesco joined EEA members for a conversation about the path they take on producing this award winning paper. Please click on the link here for the recording of their session.
