Mark Beissinger, the Henry W. Putnam Professor of Politics at Princeton University has been awarded a 2017 Guggenheim Fellowship. Professor Beissinger, received the Guggenheim Fellowship for his project that concerns how revolution as a mode of regime-change has evolved globally over the past century–and in particular, the impact of urbanization on the incidence, forms, processes, and consequences of mass revolt. Only 173 fellowships from a group of almost 3,000 applicants were awarded on the basis of prior achievement and exceptional promise. Of the 173 Guggenheim Fellowships awarded in 2017, eight recipients were Princeton faculty members. We also extend our congratulations to Princeton faculty members B. Andrei Bernevig, Linda Colley, Phil Klay, Aaron Landsman, Fiona Maazel, Claudia Rankine and Stacy Wolf.
