MAY 2013 REPORT

 

Dear Colleagues,
Vince and I wish to share the many achievements by our faculty, students and campus partners this month. First, two UW students were selected as the 2013-14 Killam Fellows including Hannah Dolph, International Studies. Hannah will study at Carleton University during Fall Quarter. Charles Emlet, Social Work, UW Tacoma, and affiliated faculty of the Center, is currently serving as a Fulbright Visiting Research Chair at McMaster University in Canada. Finally, the Center and campus partners - Program on Climate Change, Atmospheric Sciences, Anthropology and Scandinavian Studies and the Jackson School's Ellison Center and West European Studies - were awarded a Mellon Grant for the joint project, “New Conceptualizations of Global Regions: The Arctic.” Congrats to our students, faculty, and new campus partners! – Nadine & Vince
