Last week, the John Simon Guggenheim Memorial Foundation announced the 2023 Guggenheim Fellowships. Of 2500+ applicants, 171 scientists, writers, scholars, and artists were selected, including UGA Distinguished Research Professor of Geography, Dr. Andrew Herod. Guggenheim Fellowships are awarded to those “who have demonstrated exceptional capacity for productive scholarship or exceptional creative ability in the arts.”

In a recent UGA Today press release, Dr. Herod comments on receiving the award: “I am thrilled to have been selected as a John Simon Guggenheim Memorial Foundation Fellow and to be in the company of so many accomplished individuals across myriad academic and creative fields,” said Herod, an economic geographer who also serves as director of the UGA à Paris Study Abroad Program. “I want to thank the Guggenheim Foundation for this recognition, together with the many people at UGA who have helped me during the course of my career and whose support has enabled me to achieve this honor.”

"Herod’s scholarship focuses on the nature and spatial dynamics of economic transformation. His research projects range from exploring how containerization impacted the labor process and the geography of work in the East Coast longshoring industry to how the collapse of Communism affected the organization of work and worker organization in the former Eastern bloc... Herod’s Guggenheim project is about the U.S. and international poultry industry, and includes a planned book, “Chicken: A Geographical Political Economy.”
