Dale T. Mortensen Centre Workshop on Interactions between Labor and Marriage Markets

Aarhus University, 6-8 April 2022


The goal of the workshop is to discuss new research at the intersection of household decision-making and labor markets. We aim to bring together researchers in the fields of quantitative and empirical macroeconomics, applied microeconomics, and family economics. Topics of interest include household formation with and without search frictions, divorce, marital sorting, income inequality, within-household insurance mechanisms, fertility decisions, and the role of firms for gender inequality, among other things.
Michèle Tertilt, University of Mannheim, will join the workshop as keynote speaker. Furthermore, Marion Goussé (CREST-ENSAI) and Jesper Bagger (Royal Holloway, University of London), have already confirmed their attendance.
The workshop will take place at The Merete Barker Auditorium, Søauditorierne, Aarhus University, Bartholins Allé 3, bldg. 1253, room 211 (Universitetsparken), 8000 Aarhus C. It will start on Wednesday 6 April 2022 at 11:40 and end after lunch at 13:30 on Friday 8 April 2022. A conference dinner will take place on Thursday 7 April 2022.
