Kotkin awarded ACLS Fellowship

Stephen Kotkin , professor of history and director of the Program in Russian Studies at Princeton, has been awarded a fellowship from the American Council of Learned Societies.

Kotkin was among 79 scholars in the humanities and social sciences to receive ACLS Fellowships for research periods of six months to one year. Kotkin will use the fellowship to help complete "Lost in Siberia: Dreamworlds of Eurasia," his historical study of the Ob River basin, a Siberian water system. He also was awarded a fellowship from the John Simon Guggenheim Memorial Foundation this year to support the project.

Kotkin's research interests include Eurasia from Japan to Britain in the modern period, and he examines topics such as empire and nation building, governance and political corruption, modernity and modernism, and urbanism.

The American Council of Learned Societies is a nonprofit federation of 68 scholarly associations devoted to the advancement of humanistic studies in all fields of learning.
