for the Center for Economy and Society at the SNF Agora Institute
The SNF Agora Institute at Johns Hopkins University is a multidisciplinary academic and public forum dedicated to strengthening global democracy by improving and expanding civic engagement and inclusive dialogue, and by supporting inquiry that leads to real-world change. This grant supports the establishment of the Center for Economy and Society, which will be housed within the SNF Agora Institute, and will bring together thinkers across disciplines and across the ideological spectrum to reinvigorate debates about politics and economics and identify new possibilities for change.
for the History and Political Economy Project
The History and Political Economy Project (HPEP) at Johns Hopkins University brings together a network of historically minded scholars, whose research examines the ways that neoliberalism has been developed, implemented, and contested around the world. With the goal of producing historical scholarship that is strategically useful for addressing the challenges of social-political transformation in the present, the project seeks to use the tools of historical inquiry to counter rising inequality, economic dislocation, and political alienation. HPEP supports new research, fosters connections among scholars working in different temporal and geographic contexts, and draws lessons for contemporary efforts to challenge the hegemony of neoliberal ideas and modes of governance.
