The Guggenheim Fellowship is awarded on the basis of prior achievement and exceptional promise.

Adela Pinch, a professor of English and women's studies, specializes in 19th Century British literature.

"I am thrilled and honored to have received the Guggenheim Fellowship," she said. "I am honored by the support I've received from my colleagues here."

Professor Paolo Squatriti, who teaches history, romance languages and literatures, environment, and in the School of Natural Resources and Environment, will analyze the impact on plant communities of shuman activities like invasions, state formation, and conversion to Christianity.

"Each year since 1925, the Guggenheim Foundation has bet everything on the individual, and we're thrilled to continue to do so with this wonderfully talented and diverse group. It's an honor to be able to support these individuals to do the work they were meant to do," he said.
