1 min read

The John Simon Guggenheim Memorial Foundation has awarded 2010 fellowships to six Harvard faculty members: Arachu Castro, assistant professor of social medicine at Harvard Medical School (HMS); Caroline Elkins, professor of history in the Faculty of Arts and Sciences (FAS); Steven Kazuo Takasugi, associate of the Department of Music; Gordon Teskey, professor of English in FAS; Sheila Jasanoff, Pforzheimer Professor of Science and Technology Studies at the Harvard Kennedy School; and Walter Johnson, Winthrop Professor of History and Professor of African and African American Studies in the Department of History.

Often characterized as “midcareer” awards, Guggenheim Fellowships are intended for scholars who have already demonstrated exceptional capacity for productive scholarship or exceptional creative ability in the arts.
