In 1933, The New School’s first president, Alvin Johnson, initiated an historic effort to rescue endangered scholars from the shadow of Nazism in Europe at the brink of WWII. These refugees became the founding scholars of “The University in Exile,” and constituted the Graduate Faculty of Political and Social Science, now The New School for Social Research. Social Research: An International Quarterly of the Political and Social Sciences was launched in 1934 by these scholars, who held the deep conviction that every university must have a distinct public voice. Social Research is one of the oldest and most influential journals in the US. Papers by authors from around the globe have reached readers in nearly 100 countries. Articles and complete back issues are regularly used as classroom texts across the United States. Over 250 articles from our pages have been translated or reprinted in books and journals all over the world, and our special conference issues are award winners.
