Economist named first female fellow

Judith Stallmann, professor of agricultural and applied economics at MU, was named a fellow by the Southern Regional Science Association. Stallmann is one of only 20 fellows named in the association’s 50-year history, and the first woman to receive the honor.

When she received the award, Stallmann made a presentation at the association’s 2010 annual meeting on the role of institutions in regional science theories and analysis.

The association is a professional organization of economists, geographers, sociologists and urban planners who study regions and the factors that lead to similarities and differences among areas, including why some grow or decline. Stallmann has served as a board member and president of the association.
