30 Sep IHC welcomes three new California Humanities Scholars
UCHRI California Humanities Scholars for 2010-11
The purpose of the new California Humanities Scholars Program is to recognize graduate students working across the broad range of humanities at the University of California and to use their collective expertise, interests and collaborative energy to create a dynamic and interactive virtual network. California Humanities Scholars are “Citizen Journalists,” reporting on the work happening on their campuses and in their various communities by blogging, tweeting, vlogging, podcasting and other forms of online networking. The California Humanities Scholars will orchestrate a regular discussion forum on the soon to be launched UC Humanities Network website. Open to all, these forums will offer insights and exchanges on a broad range of issues related to the humanities.
For 2010-11 the following UCSB students have been chosen as California Humanities Scholars:
Desiree D’Allesandro (Art)
Amanda Phillips (English)
Dan Reynolds (Film and Media Studies)
All three students have concurrently been chosen as HASTAC (Humanities, Arts, Science, and Technology Advanced Collaboratory) scholars. More information about the HASTAC Scholars program is available online at http://www.hastac.org/scholars.
