Erich Pinzón-Fuchs

I’m an assistant professor in the department of economic sciences at Universidad Nacional de Colombia, Bogotá, and a lecturer in the econ department at Uniandes. I’m particularly interested in the history and methodology of macroeconometric modeling, in the history of recent economics, and in the effects of gender representations in the production of economic knowledge. After obtaining my Ph.D. at La Sorbonne in March 2017 under the supervision of Annie L. Cot and after spending almost two years at the HOPE Center at Duke, I did a postdoc at the economics department of Uniandes under the supervision of Andrés Álvarez and Jimena Hurtado.  I teach courses in the history of economics, political economy, and gender and economics at UNAL and Uniandes.

I’m the twittermaster for the Societies for the History of Economics (SHoET), which is a joint initiative of the History of Economics Society (HES) and the European Society for the History of Economic Thought (ESHET). I’m also a founding member of the Latin American Society for the History of Economics (ALAHPE), and a member of ALAHPE’s communication committee. I also make part of the Research Group in the History and Methodology of Recent Economics (REhPERE) of the University Paris 1 Panthéon-Sorbonne.

In my spare time, I like to ride my bicycle in the ciclovía of Bogotá, travel, and mostly dance salsa, cumbia, and carranga with Emilie!


About the randomized header images: These are pictures that Emilie 
and I have taken in the last years (in a very amateur way). 
Most pictures were taken in Colombia. The city is downtown Bogotá, 
viewed from the the historic distric of La Candelaria. There are also
several pictures from Chingaza National Park, which is a special 
"páramo" eco-system with its beautiful "frailejones." The picture with
the cows is the "Cocora Valley," and the other very green mountains 
are El Sisga, close to Bogotá. The pictures with the pines are from 
Colorado, as is also the rocky one, of course. The desert is the 
beautiful and surprising Atacama Desert in Chile.
