From 9/2017 – 6/2018:

Álvaro Morcillo-Laiz is interested in whether the expertise and material resources of science patrons, i.e. foundations, shape sociology, political science, and international relations. He studies whether donors, by granting the means necessary for scholars to pursue certain research questions, wield a “philanthropic domination” over what we think about society.
