Princeton Professor Elizabeth Levy Paluck Named Fellow of the American Academy of Political and Social Science

Elizabeth Levy Paluck, a distinguished professor at Princeton University, has been named one of eight fellows by the American Academy of Political and Social Science (AAPSS) this year. Known for her groundbreaking research on prejudice and conflict reduction as well as the development of social norms in various environments, Paluck is an expert in ethnic conflict, political conflict, conflict among young people in schools, and violence against women.

Through large-scale field experiments, she tests theoretically driven interventions that target social norms and behavior. Her work has been instrumental in identifying more effective ways to reduce prejudice, violence, and conflict in society.

Marta Tienda, the president of AAPSS and a professor at Princeton, welcomed the new fellows with great enthusiasm. She believes that at a crucial moment in American democracy, the insights provided by social science thought leaders like Paluck are essential for reimagining American world leadership and ensuring economic opportunities for future generations.

Paluck’s career began with a fellowship at the Harvard Academy for International Affairs before joining the faculty at Princeton University in 2009. Since then, she has received numerous other awards and honors throughout her career, including two Robert B. Cialdini Awards for field research, an Early Career Award from the American Psychological Association’s Society for the Study of Peace Conflict Violence , an honorary degree from Claremont Graduate University , and a Graduate Mentoring Award from the McGraw Center for Teaching and Learning at Princeton.
