Conference Room of California Center for Population Research 4th floor, Luskin Hall Los Angeles

11th Trans-Pacific Labor Seminar at UCLA

The Trans Pacific Labor Seminar (TPLS) was founded by Takao Kato and Peter Kuhn in 2007 to begin a much-needed process of international academic integration of labor economists in the Pacific Rim. Since then, the TPLS has been holding annual meetings in the United States, Japan and Australia. We are pleased to bring the TPLS meeting to Los Angeles for the first time.

The conference is open to interested faculty and graduate students from all fields. To attend the conference, please take a moment to RSVP here.

Confirmed U.S.-based speakers are Dora Costa (UCLA), Peter Kuhn (UCSB), Jesse Rothstein (Berkeley), Kathryn Shaw (Stanford), Dan Silverman (ASU), and Melanie Wasserman (UCLA), among others. 

The preliminary program can be found on the conference webpage.

Organizers: Till von Wachter (UCLA), Takao Kato (Colgate), Peter Kuhn (UC-Santa Barbara), and Ryo Kambayashi (Hitotsubashi)

Sponsors: UCLA (the Social Science Dean, the Vice Chancellor for Research Office, International Institute, Terasaki Center for Japanese Studies)
