Humanities Institute Public Fellows Info Session
April 10, 2018 @ 12:00 pm - 1:00 pm | Humanities 1, Room 202
Please join us for an information session about The Humanities Institute’s Public Fellows program on Tuesday, April 10 from 12:00-1:00 pm in Humanities Room 202 where we will hear from our 2017 cohort of Public Fellows, and also cover the opportunities for public fellows this coming summer which include new partner organizations.
In addition, we are launching a new public fellows program that will allow students to work as public fellows during the school year (we will cover tuition, fees, and stipends for selected applicants).
These fellowships provide the opportunity for doctoral students in the humanities to contribute to research, programming, communications and fundraising at non-profit organizations, cultural institutions, or companies and are meant to allow the students to apply and expand their skills in a non-academic setting while engaged in graduate study.
The 8 fellows below will share with us their summer experiences and will be able to help serve as mentors for those of you who are considering applying for the program going forward:
Danielle Crawford, Literature, Project: “Planning and Conservation League”
Andrew Hedding, Linguistics, Project: “Senderos”
Ryan King, Feminist Studies, Project: “Digital NEST”
Amani Liggett, Literature, Project: “Santa Cruz Shakespeare
Priscilla Martinez, History, Project: “Tucson Chinese Cultural Center”
Jason Ostrove, Linguistics, Project: “Barra Heritage Centre”
Kirstin Wagner, Literature, Project: “Catamaran Literary Reader”
We hope to see you there!
