The Center for Advanced Study in the Behavioral Sciences (CASBS) at Stanford University on Tuesday named its 2022-23 fellows class, comprising 36 scholars representing 17 U.S. institutions and 12 international institutions and programs.
The incoming fellows conduct research in a diversity of fields within or intersecting the social and behavioral sciences, including anthropology, communication, economics, education, geography, history, law, medicine, philosophy, political science, psychology, public affairs, public policy and urban studies, public health and nutrition, science and technology studies, and sociology.
“Each year since 1954, a select group of distinguished thinkers and scholars have explored pressing societal questions and issues as members of the Center’s residential fellows program. It’s a renowned, enduring legacy,” said CASBS Deputy Director Sally Schroeder.
This is the final CASBS class selected under a fellowship selection committee that includes Margaret Levi, who is set to step down this summer after more than eight years of service as CASBS director.
Several fellowships are funded by some of the Center’s partner fellowship programs.
- The Science and Technology Policy Research and Information Center within the National Applied Research Laboratories of Taiwan, a federal government agency, will support Tzu-wei Hung as a Stanford-Taiwan Social Science fellow. This is the seventh year of fellows at CASBS under this partnership.
- For the fourth consecutive year, the Chinese University of Hong Kong will support one CUHK-Stanford University CASBS fellow, Wilson Wong.
- The center, in collaboration with South Africa’s Stellenbosch Institute for Advanced Study, will host its third STIAS-Iso Lomso fellow, Lukman Abdulrauf.
- One fellow, Riana Anderson, will be in residence as part of CASBS’s longstanding association with the William T. Grant Scholars Program.
- Under a new partnership with Curriculum Open-access Resources in Economics, CASBS will host its first CORE fellow, Simon Halliday. CORE is an open-access economics project governed by CORE Economics Education with a mission to reform the teaching of economics.
In addition to fellows, CASBS has three other appointment designations: visiting scholars (academics who are spouses/partners of fellows), research affiliates (non-Stanford scholars who lead CASBS-based research projects), and faculty fellows (Stanford faculty who lead CASBS-based research projects). The Center will finalize these appointments by late spring or summer. And it is possible that additional fellows will join the roster in the coming months.
