Charles W. Mills, who was welcomed into the CUNY GC Philosophy faculty as a Distinguished Professor in 2016, has been elected into the American Academy of Arts and Sciences, a community of scholars and leaders which "serves the nation as a champion of scholarship, civil dialogue, and useful knowledge."
In an announcement to the CUNY GC community, Provost Joy Connolly writes:
"Founded in 1780, the Academy gathers some of the world's most accomplished scholars, scientists, writers, and artists for independent policy research on pressing challenges. . . . Professor Mills, a celebrated and prolific author, focuses on social and political philosophy, particularly in oppositional political theory as centered on class, gender, and race. His first book, The Racial Contract (Cornell University Press, 1997), is now read in hundreds of courses nationwide, from philosophy to anthropology."
