Where: Universidad del Desarrollo, Santiago de Chile

When: 25 – 26 May 2023

2023 marks the 300th anniversary of Adam Smith. The International Adam Smith Society, the Hayek Program at the Mercatus Center, and the Universidad del Desarrollo would like to take the opportunity to bring together young Latin American scholars working on Adam Smith with senior scholars to workshop their papers.

For two days, young scholars will briefly present a paper that all participants will have read in advance and will receive detailed feedback followed by a general discussion on their work.

The workshop will allow us to identify and prepare papers to be presented at international conferences or submitted to scholarly journals. Senior scholars will accompany young scholars through the preparation process after the workshop.

The workshop will also promote contact and exchange between young scholars to help them build a network of people working on Smith in the region and beyond.

We welcome papers on all aspects of Adam Smith from all disciplines.

Interested young scholars (advanced undergraduate students, graduate students, and others who have received their master’s degree in the last two years or their Ph.D.s degree in the last four years—the number of years since the end of the degree can be flexible) should send an abstract of maximum 1,000 words and a short bio to latinamericansmith@gmail.com by March 1st, 2023. Successful applicants should send complete papers (8,000 – 11,000 words) by April 28, 2023.

The workshop will take place on May 25 and 26 at Universidad del Desarrollo in Santiago de Chile.

The workshop will cover reasonable transportation, lodging, and meals for all participants.

Among the senior scholars attending the workshop there will be:

Maria Alejandra Carrasco, Universidad Católica de Chile (Philosophy)
Christel Fricke, University of Oslo (Philosophy)
Alvaro Perpere-Viñuales, Pontificia Universidad Católica de Argentina (Philosophy and Economics)
Jimena Hurtado, Universidad de los Andes – Colombia (Economics)
Maria Pia Paganelli, Trinity University (Economics)
Sarah Wilford, Universidad de los Andes – Chile (Government)
Juan Pablo Couyoumdjian, Universidad del Desarrollo (Government)

We expect other senior scholars to be in the audience.
