Killian Clarke, a fifth-year graduate student in comparative politics, has been awarded the Graduate School's honorific Procter Fellowship for the 2019-20 academic year.
Clarke will be using the fellowship to support the completion of his dissertation, which is a comparative study of counterrevolutions. The project includes a focused case analysis of Egypt's 2011 revolution and 2013 counterrevolution, using both interviews with Egyptian elites and data on protests during the post-revolution transition. It also includes a cross-national component, in which he analyzes the emergence of counterrevolution globally and through time, drawing on a dataset of 20th and 21st century revolutions.
He will spend next year wrapping up his fieldwork, analyzing data and drafting chapters, and disseminating the findings.
