For each of the last 32 years, Restud has invited job market candidates in the US to present their research in three European locations in May after the job market. For the first time this year, the journal is also hosting a tour of North American institutions, with the aim of showcasing excellent job market candidates from European institutions. The inaugural North America Tour is scheduled to take place October 22, 2021. It will involve visits to University of California San Diego, the University of Chicago, and University of Pennsylvania. A committee of Restud board members have nominated Milena Djourelova (UPF), Elisa Macchi (Zurich), and Lukasz Rachel (LSE) to take part.
