The Center for Advanced Study in the Behavioral Sciences (CASBS) at Stanford University is pleased to announce its 2019-20 fellows class, comprised of 37 scholars representing 23 U.S. institutions and 7 international institutions and programs.

The incoming class conduct research in a diversity of fields within or intersecting the social and behavioral sciences: American studies, anthropology, communication, comparative literature, development economics, earth sciences, economics, education, global studies and languages, history, language and literature, law, medicine, philosophy, political science, psychology, science and technology studies, sociology, and statistics and probability.

Fifty-one percent of the fellows are female.

“Each year, CASBS becomes a vibrant community thanks to its fellows,” said Sally Schroeder, the Center’s associate director. “The success of that annual renewal depends on attracting and selecting some of the greatest minds and deepest thinkers worldwide. We’ve come to expect that each fellows class helps reinforce the Center’s reputation as the best at what it does. I’m delighted to say the 2019-20 class easily continues the tradition.”

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).
