The Committee on Social Theory (CST) was formed in 1989 to counter traditional disciplinary narrowness in social thought, to build bridges between the humanities and social sciences, and to inform social research with transdisciplinary theoretical understandings. It was one of the first such programs in the United States. Since its founding, the history of the Committee has been one of gradual expansion and continuous success. Today, it oversees a vibrant pedagogical and research program and has over 140 affiliated faculty from colleges across the University.
