Two Princeton scholars are among 52 people recently elected to membership in the American Philosophical Society.
The Princeton honorees are Robert Keohane, professor of public international affairs, and Viviana Zelizer, the Lloyd Cotsen '50 Professor of Sociology.
The Philadelphia-based organization, founded by Benjamin Franklin in 1743, is the country's oldest learned society. The society engages leading scholars, scientists and professionals in opportunities for multidisciplinary, intellectual fellowship, and it supports research, discovery and education through grants, lectures, publications, prizes and exhibitions.
