Colleen Moore, a history professor at James Madison University, was awarded an American Council of Learned Societies (ACLS) Project Development Grant for her project, “At War with the State: Russian Peasants, Mass Mobilization, and the End of the Autocracy.” Her project explores how the mobilization of the Russian peasant population for the First World War undermined peasants’ faith in the autocracy and transformed their understanding of state power.

Moore was one of 14 awardees. ACLS Project Development Grants support faculty at teaching-intensive universities whose research projects will advance humanistic studies and interpretive social sciences. Grantees receive $5,000, which may be used for any costs that support their research project. Moore plans to use her award to support the completion of her book manuscript and offset conference travel and research costs.
