Two professors have been named inaugural Andrew Carnegie Fellows by the Carnegie Corporation of New York.
Patricia Sullivan, an associate professor in the department of public policy and the curriculum in peace, war, and defense, and Zeynep Tufekci, an assistant professor in the UNC School of Information and Library Science and an adjunct professor in the department of sociology, are among 32 scholars selected for the honor.
The fellowship program recognizes those who are pursuing research on the challenges facing U.S. democracy and international order in the next 25 years.
Sullivan, an award-winning teacher and scholar, focuses her research on the utility and limitations of employing military force and providing foreign military assistance to attain policy objectives. Her book, Who Wins? Predicting Strategic Success and Failure in Armed Conflict, was published by Oxford University Press in 2012.
She teaches courses in national and international security, global policy and social science research design, and is training and supporting a new generation of scholar-practitioners through the U.S. Army’s Advanced Strategic Planning and Policy Program.
Tufekci’s research interests revolve around the intersection of technology and society, and her academic work focuses on social movements and civics, privacy and surveillance, and social interaction.
Her forthcoming book, Beautiful Tear Gas: The Ecstatic, Fragile Politics of Networked Protest in the 21st Century (Yale University Press), will examine the dynamics, strengths and weaknesses of 21st century social movements.
