BioLarry Litvak has been a Lecturer in Urban Studies since 2010, and in Public Policy since 2014. He was one of the principals in developing two highly successful, socially-oriented business ventures: Walden Asset Management, one of the pioneers of socially responsible investing, and Working Assets/CREDO Mobile, a telecommunications firm that has generated $78 million of support to progressive non-profits. Both these organizations have major advocacy programs, the former focusing on changing corporate behavior and the latter on changing on public policy (CREDO Action). He also has advised state and local governments on the financing of job and housing development. Larry served for many years on the board of the Tides Foundation and Center, a leading funder and sponsor of social justice advocacy. He has also been a board member of domestic and international community loan funds, social service providers, a public oversight board, and an anti-viral drug development enterprise. Larry has been a decision-maker in awarding more than $100 million to various social sector initiatives, including many advocacy organizations. In addition, he has participated in several political campaigns around the country. He was a leading organizer in the Stanford and national South Africa divestment movement in the late 1970s. Larry has a bachelor's degree in Economics from Stanford University and a master's degree in Public Policy from the Kennedy School, Harvard University.

Tanya Marie Luhrmann
Albert Ray Lang Professor
Current Research and Scholarly InterestsHer work focuses on the edge of experience: on voices, visions, the world of the supernatural and the world of psychosis. She has done ethnography on the streets of Chicago with homeless and psychotic women, and worked with people who hear voices in Chennai, Accra and the South Bay. She has also done fieldwork with evangelical Christians who seek to hear God speak back, with Zoroastrians who set out to create a more mystical faith, and with people who practice magic.
