Jan-Werner Müller named 2024-25 Old Dominion Research Professor

May 20, 2024

Jan-Werner Müller, the Roger Williams Straus Professor of Social Sciences and professor of politics, was named a 2024-25 Old Dominion Research Professor by the University's Humanities Council. 

The professorship provides additional research time for Princeton faculty members and seeks to enhance the University humanities community more broadly.

Over the course of the academic year, Old Dominion Research Professors engage in the intellectual life of the Humanities Council, contribute to cross-disciplinary programs and events, and are invited to share their research through talks, workshops, and lunch conversations. The cohort of Old Dominion Research Professors will also serve as Faculty Fellows in the Society of Fellows in the Liberal Arts.

Müller’s project as Old Dominion Professor, Christian Democracy: A New Intellectual History, will trace the attempts to reconcile Catholicism and modern democracy.
