Center Director Eldar Shafir and two other Center affiliates are among the seven Princeton faculty members who have been named fellows of the American Academy of Arts and Sciences. They are among 228 leaders in scholarship, business, the arts and public affairs elected this year in recognition of their contributions to their respective fields. Founded in 1780, the American Academy of Arts and Sciences is one of the country's oldest learned societies and independent policy research centers, convening leaders from the academic, business and government sectors to respond to the challenges facing the nation and the world.
Shafir, the Class of 1987 Professor in Behavioral Science and Public Policy and professor of psychology and public affairs, was inducted with the new class of fellows at a ceremony October 7 in Cambridge, Massachusetts. Other affiliated faculty of the Center--Ann Case, the Alexander Stewart 1886 Professor of Economics and Public Affairs, and Dalton Conley, the Henry Putnam University Professor in Sociology--were also be among those so honored in the fall.
