Eight Princeton faculty members have received 2017 Guggenheim Fellowships — they are among 173 fellowships from a group of almost 3,000 applicants awarded on the basis of prior achievement and exceptional promise.

The recipients are (in order of the photos): Claudia Rankine, visiting professor of creative writing and the Lewis Center for the Arts, for poetry; B. Andrei Bernevig, professor of physics, who focuses on quantum condensed-matter physics; Linda Colley, the Shelby M.C. Davis 1958 Professor of History, for a forthcoming book on how rising levels of conflict after 1750 fostered the world-wide spread of new constitutions; Phil Klay, lecturer in creative writing and the Lewis Center for the Arts, for fiction; Aaron Landsman, lecturer in theater and the Lewis Center for the Arts, for drama and performance art; Fiona Maazel, lecturer in creative writing and the Lewis Center for the Arts, for fiction; Mark Beissinger, the Henry W. Putnam Professor of Politics, for a project that concerns how revolution as a mode of regime change has evolved globally over the past century; and Stacy Wolf, professor of theater in the Lewis Center for the Arts, for her forthcoming book, Beyond Broadway: Four Seasons of Amateur Musical Theatre in the U.S.
