The “Raffaelli lecture” is in honour of Tiziano Raffaelli, Full professor of History of Economic Thought at the University of Pisa, an internationally renowned specialist of Alfred Marshall’s economics, a promoter of several research initiatives of political economy, and an active and reputable member of STOREP. Starting from the 14th Annual STOREP Conference, and thanks to the generosity of Manuela Giovannetti, full professor at the University of Pisa and widow of Tiziano Raffaelli, STOREP invites every year an internationally recognized scholar who has led innovative research on Raffaelli’s main interests – from Alfred Marshall’s thought, in particular, to, more generally, industrial economics, evolutionary economics, economic methodology – to hold a one-hour lecture to participants in the main conference. STOREP will broadly disseminate the lecture contents, both on its website and on social media, and eventually on special issues of academic journals with selected articles presented in the Annual Conference.
After Marco Dardi in 2016 and Harro Maas in 2017, Richard Arena will give the third “Raffaelli Lecture” at the 2019 STOREP conference in Siena. The title of the lecture is: “Léon Walras and Alfred Marshall: microeconomic rational choice or human and social nature?“.
