A Biographical Dictionary of Women Economists

Elgar original reference

Edited by Robert W. Dimand, Mary Ann Dimand and Evelyn L. Forget

This major original reference work includes over one hundred specially commissioned articles on the lives and writings of women who made significant contributions to economics. It sheds new light on the rich, but too often neglected, heritage of women’s analysis of economic issues and participation in the discipline of economics. In addition to those who wrote in English, some notable Danish, Dutch, French, German, Greek, Italian, Japanese, Russian and Swedish women economists are included. This book will transform widely-held views about the past role of women in economics, and will stimulate further research in this exciting but underdeveloped field. It is dedicated to the memory of Michèle Pujol, a pioneer in the field.

Anna Koutsoyiannis (1932–86) Anna Koutsoyiannis was born in Athens, Greece, in 1932 and died, prematurely and tragically by her own hand, in Ottawa, Canada, in September 1986. Left behind to grieve for her were a son Peter, her ex-husband Costas, colleagues at her final affiliation (the Department of Economics of the University of Ottawa), and her many students, with whom she had an excellent rapport. Anna’s career path can be easily traced. After a BA at the Athens School of Economics in 1954 (during which she won the Distinguished Student Award), she headed to England and the University of Manchester, where she received her Ph.D. in 1962; her last two years at Manchester were divided between her own research and teaching at lecturer rank.
