Abstract: Brett Kubicek (PhD, Massachusetts Institute of Technology) is a Post-Doctoral Fellow in Political Science whose inter-disciplinary research draws on a wide variety of sub-fields, including comparative politics, leadership studies, empirical political theory, political psychology and qualitative methods. His dissertation, Political Creativity, examined ways in which individuals achieve large-scale political change, with a special focus on how they approach long-term projects that go against prevailing conditions and conventional ideas. Kubicek’s work designs tools that analyze both the nature and interaction of social forces and individual traits. He uses projects for change as a basis for building these analytical tools, which are designed to be applicable to diverse historical, geographic, and political settings, as well as to a range of empirical phenomena beyond political creativity. During his year at the Mershon Center, Kubicek will apply these theoretical and analytical tools to case studies, especially those which restructure inter-group relations where there exists potential for conflict, including examples from Poland, Italy, Britain, China, and Iran.
