3CT Fellows in the News

We were pleased to co-sponsor the Pozen Family Center for Human Rights‘s recent 2020 Kirschner Lecture featuring 3CT co-director Lisa Wedeen and Tom Ginsburg. Video from the event, titled “From D.C. to Damascus: The Architecture of Modern-Day Authoritarianism,” is now available.

View the event video on the Pozen Center’s website.


Congratulations to 3CT fellow Adom Getachew, whose book, World Making After Empire: The Rise and Fall of Self-Determination (Princeton University Press, 2019), was awarded the 2020 ASA Book Prize from the African Studies Association. The award recognizes the most important scholarly work in African studies published in English and distributed in the United States during the preceding year.


3CT fellow William Mazzarella was recently interviewed in The Caravan by Abhimanyu Chandra, a doctoral student at the University of Chicago. Part of a series of conversations considering when, why, and how some people leave right-wing settings, the two discussed how people’s attachments to figures like the Indian prime minister Narendra Modi and Trump can be understood as ways of organizing anxiety.
