As the result of recent gifts supporting our efforts in internationalization, the Lampert Institute for Civic and Global Affairs is now able to support faculty scholarship in areas that relate to the Institute’s broad mission. Please join me in congratulating the following faculty members for having been awarded a Lampert Faculty Scholarship to help support their research over the coming months.
- Beth Parks, Department of Physics and Astronomy, for her project “Measuring Air Quality in Uganda”
- Ryan Solomon, Department of Writing and Rhetoric, for his project “Xenophobia in the Rainbow Nation: Citizenship and Belonging in Post-Apartheid South Africa”
- Emilio Spadola, Department of Sociology and Anthropology, for his project titled “Spiritual Security: Globalization and the Moroccan Sufi Revival”
- Kira Stevens, Department of History, for her project “Migration and the Transformation of Identity: Swiss Colonies in 19th- and 20th-Century Russia”
More details on the availability of these funds can be found here.
Members of the community who wish to learn more about the Faculty Scholars program should contact David McCabe, the current Director, or Jason Kawall, who takes over as Director of the Lampert Institute on July 1st.
