Eight Stanford scholars elected to the American Academy of Arts and Sciences

The American Academy of Arts and Sciences (AAAS), one of the country's oldest honorary learned societies, announced on April 24 the election of 175 new fellows and 20 new foreign honorary members, including eight Stanford University scholars--Lawrence Bobo, Savas Dimopoulos, Margaret Fuller, Larry Kramer, Lawrence Lessig, Susan McConnell, Franco Moretti and Stephen Shenker.

Founded in 1780 by Revolutionary leaders John Adams, John Hancock and James Bowdoin, the academy provides a forum for scholars, professionals and government leaders to work together on the needs and problems of society. With 4,000 American fellows and 600 foreign honorary members, the academy hosts several research programs addressing pressing contemporary issues, such as the role of the humanities in American culture, global security and the use of technology in global development.

The election of this year's class brings the number of Stanford scholars in the academy to 230.

Lawrence D. Bobo, the Martin Luther King Jr. Centennial Professor, is an authority on race, ethnicity and social inequality.
