Professor Richeson named a Fellow of AAPSS!
Professor Richeson is one of 7 scholars elected to the American Academy of Political and Social Science (AAPSS) this year.
From the AAPSS press release:
“The Academy will induct seven extraordinarily accomplished scholars as its 2022 cohort of Fellows at an event to be held in Philadelphia later this year. The AAPSS inducts a new cohort of Fellows each year, in recognition of contributions that advance science and deepen public understanding of human behavior and social dynamics.
‘Each year, the Academy welcomes a new class of Fellows whose influential research showcases the importance of the social sciences in addressing issues ranging from racial and economic inequality to extremism in political parties,’ said Marta Tienda, president of AAPSS. ‘The 2022 class of AAPSS Fellows includes social and political scientists whose distinguished scholarship has and continues to elevate prominent policy discussions.’
The Academy now has 152 Fellows in total. Most are university-based scholars responsible for research that has changed our understanding of human behavior and the world in which we live; others are public servants who have used research and evidence in institutions of government to advance the common good.
