Social Research: An International Quarterly

Social Research: An International Quarterly Founded in 1934 by immigrant refugees. Carrying the torch of academic freedom and freedom of expression, and mapping the landscape of intellectual thought.
Most issues of Social Research address a single theme, which is addressed by scholars, writers, and experts from a wide range of disciplines. Some of these issues are the proceedings of our conference series; others are guest coedited by scholars who bring their unique expertise to bear on multifaceted explorations of the subjects of their interest. Some of our themes are explicitly drawn from the social sciences; others consider particular parts of the world. Still other issues address concepts, ideas, or phenomena that seem ripe for exploration. A complete list of our back issues is available on our website; many are still in print and available for purchase. Social Research is available online through Project Muse: http://muse.jhu.edu/journals/social_research/ and JSTOR: http://www.jstor.org/journal/socialresearch

In 1933, the New School’s first president, Alvin Johnson, with support from philanthropist Hiram Halle and the Rockefeller Foundation, initiated an historic effort to rescue endangered scholars from the shadow of Nazism in Europe at the brink of WWII. These refugees became the founding scholars of “The University in Exile,” and constituted what became known as the Graduate Faculty of Political and Social Science, now known as The New School for Social Research. Social Research: An International Quarterly of the Political and Social Sciences was launched in 1934 by these scholars, who held the deep conviction that every true university must have its own distinct public voice.

Since 1988, Social Research has published 20 issues that have explored political transitions occurring in various countries and regions in the world. The series began with two issues examining Central and East
Europe on the cusp of the dramatic changes that led to and accompanied the fall of the Berlin Wall in November 1989. In this most recent examination of political transitions, we asked our authors to examine political trends in countries that we looked at earlier in the series, the current trends appear to be towards increased inequality, repression, and a diminution in respect for human rights rather than towards increasing freedoms.

Yesterday, the Alabama State Senate passed a near-total abortion ban. The bill prohibits abortion at every stage of pregnancy, and while it includes an exception for "serious" risk cases, it rejects exceptions for rape or incest. The bill now awaits Governor Kay Ivey's signature.

In 1991, Social Research: An International Quarterly published "Gender Politics and Public Policies" (Vol. 58, No. 3), a journal dedicated to varying perspectives of political, social, and cultural topics and the implications of changes in the welfare state for women.

The 39th Social Research Conference "Loyalty & Betrayal" Conference will be coming this fall and in recognition of The New School's Centennial year & the deep complexities underlying the concepts of "Loyalty & Betrayal", it will be held during the “Festival of the New.”

"Growing up in the states, I never felt represented, because I could never flip through a magazine and see a girl who was wearing a hijab," she said.

21 year old model and St. Cloud State University scholar, Halima Aden has been making waves in the modeling industry over the past few years, shattering stereotypes and inspiring many. Her recent victory came last week when she became the first Sports Illustrated model to pose wearing a burkini and hijab.

She spoke about living in a refugee camp in Kenya until the age of seven. She then moved to Minnesota, where she began making history at a young age as her town's first homecoming queen and continued to make waves by just being herself. Read More: https://cbsn.ws/2IYmwrV

"...instead of me pulling out my flower crown, it was more important that I brought OUR culture to Coachella."

With the release of "Homecoming", @Beyoncé has a chokehold on everything that is social media, with endless tweets, emojis and gifs popping up in support of her new film.

Beyoncé's concert film documentary follows the production and execution of her history making performance at the 2018 Coachella Festival as the first African American woman to headline the event since its founding in 1999.

Paying tribute to iconic figures in African American history, like Maya Angelou, Alice Walker, and Reginald Lewis to highlighting aspects of black culture like HBCUs and the Divine Nine, Beyoncé has created a new wave in entertainment, music, and history. -

The New School's first president Alvin Johnson and cohort of exiled scholars launched Social Research: An International Quarterly in 1934 to maintain that every true university must have its own distinct public voice.

On April 26, we continue on with New University in Exile Consortium's very first conference Academic Institutions Under Attack: Freedom of Inquiry at Risk, at which the exiled scholars hosted by Consortium institutions will speak.

#NSSRNews Register | https://bit.ly/2UweUTM

Here's why you should attend New University in Exile Consortium's Spring Conference: Academic Institutions Under Attack: Freedom of Inquiry at Risk at The New School.

The New University in Exile Consortium is an initiative morally mandated by The New School 's past as the home of the first University in Exile in 1933, created in response to the current alarming increase in the persecution of scholars worldwide and the increasing attacks on academic freedom. We are living at a time when scholars around the world are under attack. In some places, universities have been shuttered or destroyed; many scholars have been purged from their faculty positions; others seek safety from conflicts that have riven their countries.

On April 26, exiled scholars hosted by The NUIEC will speak on the attacks on universities and academic freedom in their home countries and how this has affected their lives. The student speakers will be sharing their experiences as an endangered scholar in countries such as Azerbaijan, Cambodia, India, Iran, and Turkey. These scholars are hosted by Barnard College, Trinity College, Wellesley College, Columbia University in the City of New York, Rutgers University, Connecticut College, Harvard University and The New School.

This is your chance to learn about what's happening in the world and of the role that the University, academia, and YOU play in the fight for protecting academic freedom.

A quick bit of history on Social Research: An International Quarterly:

In 1933, the New School’s first president, Alvin Johnson, with support from philanthropist Hiram Halle and the Rockefeller Foundation, initiated an historic effort to rescue endangered scholars from the shadow of Nazism in Europe at the brink of WW II. These refugees became the founding scholars of “The University in Exile,” and constituted what became known as the Graduate Faculty of Political and Social Science, now known as The New School for Social Research. Social Research: An International Quarterly of the Political and Social Sciences was launched in 1934 by these scholars, who held the deep conviction that every true university must have its own distinct public voice. Read Alvin Johnson’s introduction to our first issue.

In the years since, Social Research has matured into one of the oldest and most influential journals in the United States. Papers by authors from around the globe have reached our readers in nearly 100 countries, and our audience continues to grow. Articles and complete back issues are regularly used as classroom texts across the United States. More than 250 articles from our pages have been translated or reprinted in books and journals all over the world, and our special conference issues are award winners.
