The Center supports faculty research in the Departments of Economics, Political Science, and Sociology in many ways. This support has helped Washington University faculty produce a multitude of books, journal articles, and publications. A list of these journal articles, scholarly volumes, and academic books, can be found in the sponsored projects publications listing. We recently started a Weidenbaum Center Working Paper Series to highlight other important research and reports. This series includes both academic work in progress by faculty and reports written in plain language intended for the broader public.
Its Sponsored Research area provides information on Center sponsored cutting-edge faculty research through faculty journal articles, research reports, and edited volumes. Center faculty (and research sponsored) Books help further educate the general public and future classes of undergraduate and graduate students.
The Incubator for Transdisciplinary Futures (ITF), a signature initiative of the Arts & Sciences Strategic Plan, was created to catalyze and support bold collaborations that foster the future of scholarly inquiry. ITF achieves its mission to nurture innovative academic configurations in part by funding multiyear thematic clusters and programmatic grants. These clusters and grants bring together faculty from across Washington University to collaborate on novel ideas, unprecedented learning opportunities, and possible solutions to the world’s most critical issues. The ITF Co-Director is Weidenbaum Center Resident Fellow, Betsy Sinclair.
