Two government graduate students — one studying the rise of populist radical right parties and the other the politics of domestic violence — have recently been honored with fellowships and other awards for their research.
David Bateman, assistant professor of government, was recently named a co-winner of the J. David Greenstone Prize from the American Political Science Association for best book in history and politics, for his book "Disenfranchising Democracy: Constructing a Mass Electorate in the United States, the United Kingdom, and France."
Héctor Abruña, the Émile M. Chamot professor of chemistry & chemical biology, was recently awarded the Frumkin Memorial Medal from the International Society of Electrochemistry, in recognition of his outstanding contributions to the field.
