The Columbia website (and daily editor Pierce Stanley) informs us that History prof Samuel Moyn has won a Guggenheim Fellowship for his works on the Holocaust’s impact on postwar France. Moyn then informed us, too, by changing his Facebook status to “Samuel Moyn is gloating.” Fortunately, he’s since wised up and changed it to “Samuel Moyn is no longer gloating.” (He’s also got one of the better Facebook professor profiles known to Bwog.)
Also winning Guggies are professors Margo Jefferson (Creative Writing), Sam Lipsyte (Creative Writing), Alexander Stille (Journalism), Jonathan Weiner (Journalism) and Peter Ozsváth (Math), with whom Bwog sat through a dismal Calc IV section Freshman year. Congrats nonetheless.
