Public Scholarship and Economics: Engaging Students in the Democratic Process


  • KimMarie McGoldrick


  • Janice Peterson



Public scholarship is an emerging pedagogical practice that integrates teaching, research, and service in ways that expand student learning by tackling critical, topical problems and generating real solutions. This paper describes the use of a course on women and the economy in two widely disparate institutions to demonstrate the process of integrating public scholarship in economics.
