New Co-Director Appointed at MaxPo: Jenny Andersson

Jenny Andersson is the new co-director at the Max Planck Sciences Po Center on Coping with Instability in Market Societies (MaxPo) in Paris. An economic historian, Jenny Andersson is CNRS Research Professor at the Centre d'études européennes (CEE), Paris, and an ERC Principal Investigator of FUTUREPOL, a Sciences Po project on the transnational history of futures research and the intellectual history of key post war forms of prediction. At MaxPo, she will continue her research on the role of the future for economic action and will establish an interdisciplinary research group to examine the conditions of political action for a post-crisis age. Jenny Andersson, who will direct the Center together with Olivier Godechot, begins her work at MaxPo in November 2015. MaxPo was established in 2012 in Paris and investigates the effects on Western societies of increasing liberalization policies, technological changes, and major cultural shifts. It does this jointly with the Sciences Po and the Max Planck Institute for the Study of Societies.
