NYU s Antón, Calhoun, and Stein Named American Association for the Advancement of Science Fellows

The American Association for the Advancement of Science has awarded New York University’s Susan Antón, an anthropologist, Craig Calhoun, a sociologist, and Daniel Stein, a physicist, the distinction of AAAS Fellow. Election as a Fellow is an honor bestowed upon AAAS members by their peers.

Antón was selected for her “distinguished contributions to the field of human evolution, and particularly to the understanding of the genus Homo,” the association announced. Calhoun was cited for “distinguished research in social theory and international and humanitarian applications.” Stein was chosen for his pioneering work toward understanding how randomness and disorder influence the organization of matter in a range of materials, including glasses and biological matter such as proteins. AAAS also recognized Stein, NYU’s dean of science, for his “distinguished contributions to science through university and organizational leadership.”

Antón is an associate professor in NYU’s Center for the Study of Human Origins, which is part of the university’s Department of Anthropo 500
