The Interpretive Methodologies and Methods Conference Group of the American Political Science Association has announced the creation of "Routledge’s Lee Ann Fujii Award for Innovation in the Interpretive Study of Political Violence.”
Named in honor of the late Lee Ann Fujii, Member (2016–17) in the School of Social Science, the award is funded by Routledge/Taylor & Francis and will recognize the published works that most innovatively study political violence from an interpretive perspective, memorializing Fujii’s approach to political research and her overall contributions to interpretive research methods.
Fujii's project at IAS focused on coordinated, collective efforts to stage violence, comparing similar mechanisms across three particular sites of violence and examining the contextual layers that shaped the local processes through which that violence unfolded.
Fujii was Associate Professor of Political Science at the University of Toronto at the time of her unexpected death in March 2018.
