New School for Social Research (New York, N.Y. : 1919-1997)
1940 – 1957
Ernst Kris was a researcher of the Institute of World Affairs (IWA), an independent research unit founded in 1943 at The New School for Social Research. IWA was modeled after the Kiel Institute in Germany, an international research organization studying the world economy. IWA took over all collective research projects formerly conducted by the Graduate Faculty of The New School. Ernst Kris organized the Totalitarian Communication Project, together with Hans Speier. The photograph was most probably taken in the 1940s.
