The Commonwealth Center for the Humanities and Society Faculty Research Forum presents the 2010 recipients of the Anne Braden Institute Faculty Research Fund Awards:
Dr. Glenn Crothers (UofL Assoc. Professor of History, Co-Editor Ohio Valley History and Director of Research at The Filson Historical Society)
Dr. Crothers will discuss his project, "Samuel M. Janney and Benjamin Hallowell: Quakers Reformers of the 19th Century U.S. South." His study examines, in part, how Janney and Hallowell pursued a social justice agenda while living in a slave society whose white members had little patience for Quaker efforts.
Dr. Jennie E. Burnet (UofL Asst. Professor of Anthropology)
Dr. Burnet will present, "Why did they NOT kill? Rwandan Muslims and Resistance to Genocide." Her project shines the light on the unexamined area of the motivations of "rescuers" or "resisters" to communal violence.
Dr. Nicole E. Seymour (UofL Visiting Asst. Professor of English)
Dr. Seymour will provide an update on her project titled, "Down with People: Anti-Natalism as Queer Environmentalism?" Her research draws from environmental justice and queer studies to examine areas where environmental concerns overlap with the concerns of sexual minorities such as gay, lesbian, bisexual, and transgender individuals.
Faculty Research Forum is free and open to the public. Refreshments Served!
