Alexander Galloway Named 2019 Guggenheim Fellow

Professor Alexander Galloway has been named a 2019 Guggenheim Fellow. He joins an eminent list of 168 scholars, artists, and writers from across the US and Canada.

The Guggenheim Foundation awards fellowships to individuals “who have already demonstrated exceptional capacity for productive scholarship or exceptional creative ability in the arts.”

Galloway has been a Professor in the Department of Media, Culture, and Communication since 2002. He is author of several books on digital media and critical theory, including The Interface Effect (Polity, 2012). Galloway has given over two hundred talks both across the U.S. and in ten countries around the world. His writings have been translated into eleven languages. He is recipient of a number of grants and awards including the Berlin Prize (2018), a Creative Capital grant (2006) and a Golden Nica in the 2002 Prix Ars Electronica.

The New York Times has described his practice as "conceptually sharp, visually compelling and completely attuned to the political moment."
