Erich Pinzón-Fuchs, PhD

I’m an assistant professor in the department of economics at Universidad Nacional de Colombia, Bogotá. I’m particularly interested in the history and methodology of macroeconometric modeling, in the history of recent economics, and in the effects that gender representations have in the production of economic knowledge.  I teach courses in the history of economics, political economy, and gender and economics at UNAL and Uniandes.

I’m the digital information manager of the History of Economics Society (HES) and a member of HES’s Executive Committee. 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’m co-director of the Grupo de Investigación en Historia, Pensamiento y Teoría Económica (GIHPTE), and I  make part of the Research Group in the History and Methodology of Recent Economics (REhPERE) of the University Paris 1 Panthéon-Sorbonne. I also tweet 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).

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 district 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.
