Alumni kudos!

Kudos to… Helen Dixon (MSP07) and four of her anthropology colleagues were awarded a National Endowment for the Humanities grant that runs through May 2024.  The project is titled “Cemeteries as More than Final Resting Places: How the History of Exclusion and Racism in the US Continues to Haunt African-Americans after Death.”  Helen leads the archival and public history components of the project, which are executed in collaboration with graduate and undergraduate students at East Carolina University. Helen also recently published “Making it “Count”: Translating your Teaching Innovations into Research Output.” The article appears in Ancient Jew Review and explores strategies of reframing, presenting, and translating one’s classroom innovations in ways increasingly recognized by academic institutions.
