Four IU professors are 2004 Guggenheim Fellows

BLOOMINGTON, Ind. -- Four Indiana University Bloomington professors have been awarded Guggenheim fellowships, the Guggenheim Foundation announced today (April 8).

Professor of Central Eurasian Studies Christopher Beckwith, Professor Emeritus of Folklore and Ethnomusicology Mary Ellen Brown, Professor of Biology Ellen Ketterson and Distinguished Professor of Biology Loren Rieseberg are among the 2004 fellowship winners.

The 80-year-old Guggenheim fellowships are given "on the basis of distinguished achievement in the past and exceptional promise for future accomplishment," to "men and women devoted to science and liberal studies, great teachers, creators of beauty, and generally to those devoted to pursuits that dignify, ennoble and delight mankind," according to the foundation.

An expert on birds' sexual behavior, Ketterson will use her Guggenheim grant to do something unusual -- bringing contemporary studies of human sexual behavior to bear on similar studies in other animals. Usually, scientists extrapolate in the other direction. Ketterson will examine whether human sex and gender concepts apply in songbirds. Studies she will begin later this year in South Dakota, Nevada, Costa Rica and Mexico will examine how geographic differences in songbird behavior and physiology relate to sex and, possibly, gender. Ketterson is a member of IU's Center for the Integrative Study of Animal Behavior. She is also president of the Kinsey Institute's Board of Governors and has a part-time appointment in IUB's Gender Studies Program.

Rieseberg plans to use his Guggenheim grant to write The Origin and Evolution of Plant Species, a comprehensive, 11-chapter monograph that Rieseberg says will provide a much-needed update to plant biology texts currently available to botanical students and researchers. A leader in plant population genetics and evolution, Rieseberg plans to integrate much of his own scholarly work into the monograph. He also
