Experts in this group study politics and social movements in the United States, with particular emphasis on the 20th century.
Some focus specifically on technology, science, and the economy, while others examine struggles for racial justice and human rights. Deeply informed by history, the group seeks actively to inform contemporary policy debates on a variety of issues, including nuclear proliferation, international scientific exchange, agricultural subsidies, intellectual property law, diversity in STEM fields, and reforms aimed at fostering inclusive and sustainable urban communities.
