Professor Denise Brennan named 2018-2019 IAS Scholar
During 2018-2019, Professor Brennan will be in residence as a member of the Institute for Advanced Study in Princeton where she will be writing Undocumented.
The Institute, established in 1930, began with twenty-three Members in the School of Mathematics with Albert Einstein as one of its first Professors. Since then, the Institute’s community of scholars has grown to include scholars from the fields of historical studies, natural sciences, and social sciences.
Founded in 1973, the School of Social Science takes as its mission the analysis of contemporary societies and social change. It is devoted to a pluralistic and critical approach to social research, from a multidisciplinary and international perspective. Each year, the School invites approximately twenty-five visiting scholars with various perspectives, methods and topics, providing a space for intellectual debate and mutual enrichment. Scholars are drawn from a wide range of fields, notably political theory, economics, law, psychology, sociology, anthropology, history, philosophy, and literature. Members pursue their own research, and participate in collective activities, including a weekly seminar at which on-going work is presented. The theme for 2018-2019 is “Crisis and Critique”
