James Campbell Scott


Social Science

James C. Scott has been cited by the Social Science Research Council's 2020 Albert O. Hirschman Prize committee as “the epitome of a broad-ranging scholar with influence across a multitude of disciplines… a gentle, humanistic approach toward policy runs through Scott’s enormously influential oeuvre, making him a fitting candidate for this prize.”

Scott is the Sterling Professor of Political Science, professor of anthropology, and codirector of the Agrarian Studies Program at Yale University.
