Dianne Pinderhughes

The American Academy of Political and Social Science (AAPSS), one of the nation’s oldest learned societies, has announced that Kellogg Institute Faculty Fellow Dianne Pinderhughes is one of six scholars chosen to be 2023 fellows this fall.

The AAPSS selects a small group of scholars and public servants to be fellows of the academy each year, in recognition of their contributions to social science and the extent to which their work has deepened public understanding of human behavior and social dynamics.

“The influential scholarship of these six eminent scholars illustrates the far-reaching significance of the social sciences for evidence-based policy,” said Marta Tienda, president of the AAPSS. “We are so pleased to welcome them as fellows of the academy.”

Pinderhughes is a political scientist whose research addresses inequality with a focus on racial, ethnic, and gender politics in the Americas from a comparative perspective. Her work also explores the creation of American institutions of civil society and their influence on the formation of voting rights policy. Pinderhughes is a Presidential Faculty Fellow and the Rev. Edmund P. Joyce, CSC, Professor of Africana Studies and Political Science at the University of Notre Dame. She is the AAPSS’s 2023 Eleanor Roosevelt Fellow.

The other 2023 Fellows of the AAPSS are Kerwin K. Charles (Yale School of Management), Jennifer Lee (Columbia University), Cecilia Menjívar (University of California, Los Angeles), Rogelio Sáenz (University of Texas at San Antonio), and Scott Straus (University of California, Berkeley).

The American Academy of Political and Social Science promotes the use of social science in the public domain and in policymaking. Its flagship journal, The ANNALS of the American Academy of Political and Social Science, brings together public officials and scholars from across social science disciplines to address issues such as the transition to adulthood in developing countries, the current and future impact of the Great Recession, enhanced government regulation, and the influence of the criminal justice system on American civic life. http://www.aapss.org/
