The Johns Hopkins Distinguished Lectures in Economics

This annual lecture series began in 1998 and was named after Richard T. Ely, a founder of the American Economic Association, who was a faculty member in our Department from 1881 to 1892.  In July 2020, the Department renamed the Richard Ely Lecture series to the Johns Hopkins Distinguished Lectures in Economics because some views held by Ely were deemed to be inconsistent with continuing to name a distinguished lecture series after him.
