KPPC's 2012 Annual Conference will Feature Professor Steve Fuller as the Keynote Speaker

Kosovo Public Policy Center is proud to announce that the keynote speaker for its annual 2012 conference will be Professor Steve Fuller of Warwick University. The following is a brief biography* of Professor Fuller. For a more complete CV, please visit his homepage.

Fuller was admitted as a John Jay Scholar to Columbia University in 1976, from where he graduated summa cum laude in History and Sociology in 1979. He then studied at Clare College, Cambridge, on a Kellett Fellowship, from which he received an M.Phil. in History and Philosophy of Science in 1981. He then received a Ph. D. in the same subject from the University of Pittsburgh in 1985, where he was an Andrew Mellon Pre-Doctoral Fellow. Fuller's Ph.D. was entitled "Bounded Rationality in Law and Science", which explored the implications of the views of Herbert A. Simon for political theory and philosophy of science.

Fuller subsequently held assistant and associate professorships at the University of Colorado at Boulder, Virginia Tech and, again, the University of Pittsburgh. In 1994, at the age of 35, he was appointed to the chair in sociology and social policy at the University of Durham, England, from which he moved in 1999 to his current post at the University of Warwick, England. He was elected as a Fellow of the Royal Society of the Arts in 1995. In July 2007 Fuller was awarded a higher doctorate (D. Litt.) by Warwick for recognition of "published work or papers which demonstrate a high standard of important original work forming a major contribution to a subject". In 2008, Fuller served as President of the Sociology section of the British Association for the Advancement of Science. In that capacity, he staged a play, 'Lincoln and DarwinóLive for One Night Only!' at the BA's annual 'Festival of Science' in Liverpool. The play was subsequently produced as a podcast in Australia.

Fuller has been a visiting professor in Denmark, Germany, Israel, Japan, Netherlands, Norway, Sweden (where he held a Fulbright Professorship in 1995 at Gothenburg University), and the United States (UCLA).

In 2011, the University of Warwick appointed Fuller to the Auguste Comte Chair in Social Epistemology.

In 2011, Fuller was appointed a Fellow of the UK Academy of Social Sciences.

In 2012, Fuller was appointed to an Honorary Professorship at Dalian University of Technology, China.
