Elinor Ostrum Will Deliver Nobel Prize Lecture

IU Professor Elinor Ostrom's receipt of the 2009 Sveriges Riksbank Prize in Economic Sciences in Memory of Alfred Nobel brought a great deal of excitement to the Bloomington campus. In December, Professor Ostrom travelled to Stockholm, Sweden to accept the award. There, she and the other Nobel Prize recipients delivered lectures as part of the week of activities leading up to the Nobel ceremony.

On Tuesday, February 16, Professor Ostrom will present her Nobel Prize lecture at the Indiana University Auditorium at 4 p.m.

The lecture, which is open to the public, will be much the same as the informal lecture Professor Ostrom delivered in Stockholm. In it, she will give an overview of the research she has done during her extraordinary career.

The lecture is an opportunity for members of the campus community to learn more about her work and to celebrate her accomplishment.
