The Center for Advanced Study in the Behavioral Sciences (CASBS) at Stanford University is pleased to announce its 2018-19 fellows class, comprised of 37 scholars representing 18 U.S. institutions and 13 international institutions and programs.

The incoming class conduct research in a diversity of fields within or intersecting the social and behavioral sciences: anthropology, classics, communication, economics, history, law, medicine, philosophy, political science, sociology, science and technology studies, and psychology.

Seventeen fellows (46%) are female.

Four fellows are Stanford faculty: Estelle Freedman (history; formerly a CASBS fellow in 2009-10), Michelle Jackson (sociology), Adrienne Mayor (science, technology and society), and Reviel Netz (classics; formerly a CASBS fellow in 2004-05).

A group of three fellows – Freedman, Jennifer Freyd (formerly a CASBS fellow in 1989-90), and Elizabeth Armstrong – will arrive with the intent of pursuing an approved collaborative project on “Interdisciplinary Perspectives on Sexual Violence: Individual, Institutional, and Structural Forces.”

Several fellowships are funded by some of the Center’s partner fellowship programs. The Berggruen Institute will support four fellows (Mike Ananny, Dominique Lestel, Adrienne Mayor, Jacob Ward). This will be the fourth year the Berggruen Institute has funded multiple fellows. For the second consecutive year, the Science and Technology Policy Research and Information Center (STPI) within the National Applied Research Laboratories of Taiwan (NARLabs), a federal government agency, will support one Stanford-Taiwan Social Science fellow (Tai-Li Chou). Also for the second consecutive year, Presence, a center at Stanford Medical School led by National Humanities Medal recipient Dr. Abraham Verghese, will support one fellow (Andrew Elder). Through the Pro Futura Science Program, the Swedish Collegium for Advanced Study will support one fellow (Elise Dermineur). Finally, the Center is delighted to welcome its inaugural two fellows (Francis Dennig, Songfa Zhong) based on a partnership with the National University of Singapore.

“The fellowship program is the cornerstone upholding the Center’s sterling reputation, and indeed provides a model that other centers and institutes have emulated for decades,” said CASBS associate director Sally Schroeder. “We approach the fellow selection process very seriously. I continue to be amazed by the standard of excellence we establish each year. We’ve reached that standard yet again with the 2018-19 class.”

It is possible that one or more additional fellows will be added to the roster in the coming months.

In addition to fellows, the Center has three other appointment designations: visiting scholars (academics who are spouses/partners of fellows), research affiliates (non-Stanford scholars who lead CASBS-based projects), and faculty fellows (Stanford faculty who lead CASBS-based projects). The Center will finalize these appointments by late spring.
