Event description: 

Tom Pepinsky:
I am the Walter F. LaFeber Professor of Government and Public Policy at Cornell University and a Nonresident Senior Fellow in the Foreign Policy Program at the Brookings Institution.
I study the interaction of political and economic systems, mostly in emerging market economies. Recently, I have been particularly focused on the question of how social institutions structure identities. I am also interested in how we construct explanations and make inferences in the social sciences.
I have a special interest in Southeast Asia, and am a faculty affiliate of the Southeast Asia Program at Cornell (SEAP), co-founder and member of the Executive Board of the Southeast Asia Research Group (SEAREG), and past president of the American Institute for Indonesian Studies (AIFIS). I am also a member of the Board of Directors of the Association for Analytical Learning about Islam and Muslim Societies (AALIMS) and the steering committee of the International Political Economy Society (IPES).
