Announcing CISSR’s 2020-2021 Faculty Fellows

CISSR welcomes the newest members of its scholarly community as the 2020-2021 Faculty Fellows. Faculty from across the range of social sciences, including political science, sociology, and anthropology are among the recipients of this round of competitive awards. The new Faculty Fellows are Austin Carson (Political Science), René D. Flores (Sociology), Angela S. Garcia (Social Service Administration), Marco Garrido (Sociology), Yanilda María González (Social Service Administration), Sarah Newman (Anthropology), and Sabina Shaikh (Social Science Collegiate Division). 

These projects encompass exciting new research from across the globe and address a diverse set of topics, including an articulation of an agenda for the sociology of corruption and  framing debates within this new field of study and a new, systematic way of measuring secrecy trends in international relations through an analysis of the President’s Daily Brief between 1961-1977.

Additionally, several projects by prior Fellows were renewed this year, including research by Michael Albertus (Political Science), Boaz Keysar (Psychology), and Monika Nalepa (Political Science). These renewal awards will support recipients in new phases of their work.
