2003 Guggenheims For Three Faculty

The appointment of three CUNY teachers made 2003 a bumper year for Guggenheim Fellows, which were announced by the Foundation in May.

Zoe Beloff, a video artist and adjunct professor of media and communication arts at City College, will use her fellowship to create a video installation employing photographs made by an early 20th-century Parisian medium of her séances. Beoff’s work has included a variety of cinematic imagery, film, stereoscopic projection performance, and interactive media.

Queens College professor emerita of English and prominent New York City poet Marie Ponsot will use her Guggen-heim to complete her next volume of poetry (her last collection, Springing, appeared from Knopf last year). “I have about 20 poems finished, and I need about 20 more,” she said.

Roger Sanjek, the Queens College anthropologist featured in the May issue of CUNY Matters for his pioneering research on ethnicity and race in Queens, will use his fellowship to complete a book on the Gray Panthers. The Panthers was an advocacy group for the aging—a very timely topic, given the current “graying” of the U.S. population expected in the next decade.
