New Grant: Developing Conformity

Last week, the Social Sciences and Humanities Research Council of Canada (SSHRC) publicly announced the results of its 2015 Insight Grant competition. I was very lucky to have my proposal selected for funding this year. This means my new 5-year project on foreign aid and global norms is officially a go.

I will have the great fortune to continue my work with an amazing team of collaborators including Stephen Brown, Andy Dawson, Katy Fallon, and Wes Longhofer as the project unfolds, and to support the work of my graduate students at MUN Sociology.

For more information about the project and to follow its results as they become available, I have created a project website at:

I greatly appreciate both SSHRC and MUN for their support of this work, and look forward to posting more about the research here soon.
