Scott MainwaringMainwaring and Appleby Elected to American Academy of Arts and Sciences

Kellogg Institute faculty fellows Scott P. Mainwaring and R. Scott Appleby have been elected fellows of the American Academy of Arts and Sciences, one of the nation’s most prestigious honorary societies. They will be formally inducted at a ceremony this fall in Cambridge, Massachusetts.

Established in 1780 by John Adams and other founders of the nation, the Academy undertakes studies of complex and emerging problems. Its membership of scholars and practitioners from many disciplines and professions gives it a unique capacity to conduct a wide range of interdisciplinary, long-term policy research. Current projects focus on science and technology; global security; social policy and American institutions; the humanities and culture; and education.

Mainwaring, the Eugene P. and Helen Conley Professor of Political Science and director of the Kellogg Institute for International Studies, has written widely on democratization in Latin America, with particular attention to the distinctive role of political parties in the new democracies of the region.

Appleby is professor of history and the John M. Regan Jr. Director of the Kroc Institute for International Peace Studies. His research examines the roots of religious violence and the potential of religious peacebuilding.

The two join six other Kellogg Institute faculty fellows who are AAAS members: Roberto DaMatta, professor emeritus of anthropology; Rev. Gustavo Gutiérrez, OP, John Cardinal O’Hara Professor of Theology; Sabine G. MacCormack, Rev. Theodore M. Hesburgh, CSC, Professor of Arts and Letters; Guillermo O’Donnell, professor emeritus of political science; and Lawrence E. Sullivan, professor of theology.

Also named to the Academy of Arts and Sciences this year is former Kellogg Institute Visiting Fellow Ruth Berins Collier, the Heller Professor of Political Science at the University of California, Berkeley, and the Rev. John Jenkins, CSC, president of the University of Notre Dame.
