The John Simon Guggenheim Memorial Foundation announced today that Adela Pinch, English professor, and Paolo Squatriti, professor of history and romance languages and literatures, both in the U-M College of Literature, Science, and the Arts, received the prestigious honor. Foundation president Edward Hirsch described the fellows as "the best of the best."
Appointed on the basis of prior achievement and exceptional promise, the successful candidates were chosen from a group of nearly 3,000 applicants in the foundation's 93rd competition. The funding amounts of the awards vary.
"We are proud to have two faculty members named as Guggenheim Fellows," said Interim Provost Paul N. Courant. "This award honors their outstanding and innovative work. It is also a testament to the breadth and depth of scholarship at the University of Michigan."
