About CEOS

The Cultural Economics Online Seminar (CEOS) was initiated in 2021 by Andrej Srakar and Trilce Navarrete  as a means to provide a forum to bring members of the ACEI community together during the COVID-19 pandemic. CEOS aims to provide a forum for researchers worldwide to share their work in cultural economics and related areas.

The series features the latest research from emerging through to well established scholars. The series also showcases a wide variety of research within cultural economics broadly defined in terms of both topic and method. Seminars typically take place biweekly throughout most of the year.

Seminars are free and everyone who wishes to join, including non-members, are welcome.
