L-R: Elizabeth Ananat, Shana Gadarian, Stefanie Stantcheva, Susan Stokes, Gabriel Zucman
The Carnegie Corporation of New York recently announced the 2021 Andrew Carnegie fellows. The fellowship supports “scholarly research in the humanities and social sciences that addresses important and enduring issues confronting our society.” The two-year fellowship is designed to lead to the release of a book or major study. Among the new class of Carnegie fellows are five scholars who have received support for their research from RSF: Elizabeth Ananat, Shana Gadarian, Stefanie Stantcheva, Susan Stokes, and Gabriel Zuchman.
Elizabeth Ananat (Barnard College, Columbia University) is the recipient of several RSF research grants focused on how work schedule unpredictability affects low-wage workers, and she was a contributor to the RSF book Whither Opportunity? Rising Inequality, Schools, and Children’s Life Chances. Shana Gadarian (Syracuse University) is the recipient of a presidential grant examining partisanship and prejudice during the COVID-19 pandemic. Stefanie Stantcheva (Harvard University) is the recipient of two RSF research grants examining social mobility in the U.S. Susan Stokes (University of Chicago) was an RSF visiting scholar in 2014-2015, and is co-author of the RSF books Democracy and the Culture of Skepticism: Political Trust in Argentina and Mexico, and Designing Democratic Government: Making Institutions Work. Gabriel Zucman (University of California, Berkeley) is the recipient of several RSF research grants focused on how government redistribution affects inequality.
RSF congratulates each of the new fellows for their accomplishments.
