CISSR welcomes the newest members of its scholarly community, the 2021-2022 Faculty Fellows! The recipients of this round of competitive awards come from the social science disciplines of Anthropology, History, Political Science, Psychology, and Sociology. From studying the development of social preferences in vulnerable children in Burkina Faso to the influence of Indigenous nations on the British empire, and the ability of political leaders to influence trust in democratic culture to investigating how natural disasters impact national economies, their projects showcase the value of interdisciplinary and international research. The CISSR funding will support research assistants, survey expenses, travel assistance, ethnographic and qualitative fieldwork, and archival research in six different countries across the globe.
