Katja Guenther, Professor of History, is one of four Princeton faculty members to receive a 2022 Guggenheim Fellowship. She is one of 180 to receive fellowships from a pool of almost 2,500 applicants—a diverse group of scholars, artists, writers, and scientists—appointed on the basis of prior achievement and exceptional promise.
Guenther joined the Princeton faculty in 2009. She specializes in the history of modern medicine and the mind sciences. Her research focuses on the history of subjectivity and the ways in which modern ideas of the self have been constituted through the interplay of cultural and scientific norms.
She was awarded the Guggenheim in the field of history of science, technology and economics.
