The New York City Media Seminar Series is a new initiative sponsored by the Media and Technology Program and the Associated Press, and organized by Lisa George (Hunter College) and Miklos Sarvary (Columbia Business School).
The goal of the seminar series is to link economists working on media topics in the greater New York area by providing a regular forum for discussion. The seminar is open to all researchers with access to New York City and draws speakers from across the US and abroad.
The preliminary 2014-2015 schedule is:
October 1, 2014: Przemyslaw Jeziorski (UC Berkeley) “An Empirical Model of Dynamic Merger Enforcement: Choosing Ownership Caps in US Radio“
December 3, 2014: Stefano DellaVigna (UC Berkeley) "Does Conflect of Interest Lead to Biased Coverage? Evidence from Movie Reviews"
February 4, 2015: Greg Crawford (University of Zurich) “The Welfare Effects of Vertical Integration in Multichannel Television Markets”
March 4, 2015: Justin Rao (Microsoft) "Fair and Balanced? Quantifying Media Bias through Crowdsourced Content Analysis"
April 1, 2015: Jeremiah Dittmar (LSE) “New Media, Markets, and Institutional Change: Evidence from the Protestant Reformation”
May 6, 2015: David Stromberg (University of Stockholm) "Social Media in China"
Seminars are held the first Wednesday of each month during the academic year at the midtown headquarters of the Associated Press at 450 W. 33rd Street. The sessions begin at 10am with coffee, followed by a 90-minute presentation and discussion. Participants are welcome to join the speaker and organizers for lunch.
