Josh is one of the six new members elected to the American Academy section that includes Anthropology, Sociology, Demography, and Archaeology. He is one of two members of the Berkeley faculty who were elected this year in Class II, which covers the Social Sciences.
The American Academy was founded in 1780, as the Revolutionary War drew to a close, by John Adams, George Washington, and others to foster science and the arts in the new nation. It is based in Cambridge, MA, publishes the journal Daedalus, and sponsors panels and working groups, most recently on the future of public higher education.
