We have created three forums — Spotlights, Voices, and Conversations— to give expression to the work of the fellows and those who have engaged them, sometimes as mentors and other times as keynote speakers at SSRC events.


Next Gen staff sat down and interviewed current and former fellows to discuss their research. Over the next few months, we'll publish this series highlighting our fellows' research under different themes including Scholar Activism, Development, Gender and more.


Next Generation Social Sciences fellows reflect on their life’s work and the change they hope to effect. Through writings and videos, in their own voice, fellows discuss the importance of scholarship and the Next Generation Social Sciences program to their academic and research careers.


In highlighting the work of fellows, as well as researchers and practitioners affiliated with the program, these narratives showcase the exemplary researchers and research promoted through the Next Generation Social Sciences program.
