Generally, applicants can expect to be notified within 6-8 weeks of their LOI submission.

    The Law & Social Sciences Program considers proposals that address social scientific studies of law and law-like systems of rules. The Program is inherently interdisciplinary and multi-methodological. Successful proposals describe research that advances scientific theory and understanding of the connections between human behavior and law, legal institutions, or legal processes. Social scientific studies of law often approach law as dynamic, made in multiple arenas, and with the participation of multiple actors. Fields of study include many disciplines, and often address problems including though not limited to:

    • Crime, Violence, and Policing
    • Economic Issues
    • Governance and Courts
    • Human Rights and Comparative Law
    • Legal Decision Making
    • Legal Mobilization and Conceptions of Justice
    • Litigation and the Legal Profession
    • Punishment and Corrections

    LSS supports the following types of proposals:

    • Standard Research Grants and Grants for Collaborative Research
    • Doctoral Dissertation Research Improvement Grants
    • Conference Awards

    Kinship. Family. Lineage. Genealogy. These words organize some of our most significant relationships, at times functioning as roadblocks to modes of being that do not sit easily with these concepts.  Organizing our affections, loyalties, and allegiances, they help to create boundaries between us and the world. We travel alongside, toward, or away from our kin — whether they be biological, adopted, intellectual, religious, or spiritual kin. Kinship thus describes an emotional as much as, or perhaps even more than, a social community. 
    At a moment when, in many societies around the world, a more capacious imagining of community is being deliberately erased or forgotten, to be replaced by parochialisms and hatreds, the Wolf Humanities Center topic for 2019–20 calls for a reappraisal of the myriad possibilities for remembering, challenging, and reimagining kinship.
