The following publications were substantially written and developed by CCS fellows while at Yale. They were all presented at our Supper Club where the authors received peer support and critique, and mentoring by faculty and our distinguished visitors. In addition we acknowledge that some of these Hall of Fame papers had the benefit of inputs from peers, faculty and other workshops at Yale and elsewhere. Nevertheless, we specifically celebrate here our Supper Club scholars and the student-centered Supper Club process.
