Two Fellows Awarded National Humanities Center Summer Residency


Congratulations to Kiran Garcha (History) and Jessica Calvanico (Feminist Studies).

Garcha and Calvanico have been awarded Fellowships to participate in the Summer Residency Program for PhD Students in the Humanities at the National Humanities Center in North Carolina. The 2019 program will focus on “Objects and Places in an Inquiry-Based Classroom: Teaching, Learning, and Research in the Humanities,” giving both students an opportunity to gain new digital skills related to mapping and to develop strategies for bringing spatial thinking into the classroom.

This two-week institute aims to create a rich network of professionals engaged with humanities education and outreach through professional development around curriculum building. Garcha and Calvanico will bring their new insight back to UC Santa Cruz through collaboration with the Center for Innovations in Teaching and Learning.
