Professors named Fulbright Scholars

Two Princeton University faculty members have received Fulbright Scholar grants to conduct research abroad this year.

Heath Lowry, director of the Department of Near Eastern Studies, received the grant for work at Bilkent University in Ankara, Turkey. He is working on two projects: "A Study of the Ozal Years (1983-93) and Their Impact on Contemporary Turkey," and a monograph on "The Social and Economic History of Ottoman Bursa, 1326-1600."

Todd Burke Porterfield, assistant professor of art and archaeology, received the grant for research on "After Iconoclasm: Art History and the Resacralization of the French Body Politic" at the Philosophie Universite de Paris X, in Paris, France.

About 800 U.S. faculty and professionals received Fulbright grants to lecture or conduct research in 140 countries around the world.
