Center for Studies of Social Change


The Center for Studies of Social Change (CSSC) was founded by Charles Tilly in 1984, when he joined the Graduate Faculty, New School for Social Research as Distinguished Professor of Sociology and History. The CSSC was modelled after the Center for Research in Social Organization at the University of Michigan, which Tilly had headed for many years. Projected as the research complement to the Committee on Historical Studies, the CSSC has since 1984 supported research on large-scale change, and provided a setting in which faculty and students in Historical Studies have pursued their own investigations. CSSC has also served as a center for the exchange of ideas, materials, and personnel from Asis, Europe, and Latin America through its partial support for several visiting research associates per academic year.
