Becoming a member

If you are a scholar interested in joining the network, please read the "Guide to Membership in SSN" and contact SSN's Associate Director of Communications Adriana Mendoza to receive a profile form and brief writing guide.

Joining the network is free, but requires something equally dear to doctoral students and full professors alike: a modest contribution of time. To join, everyone, regardless of rank, must fill out a member profile, and write a two page brief.  Professor Theda Skocpol reviews and edits each brief. If your brief is accepted, once you approve your edits and your brief is published, you will be a member.
