SAR Announces the 2021 resident scholar colloquium series. From a presentation on race-making in Albania to an exploration of Indigenous perspectives on the WWII Manhattan Project, scholar colloquia are a unique opportunity to hear about each of the 2021 resident scholar projects from the researchers themselves.
Our scholars use their fellowship year to hone writing skills while finishing their diverse research projects. It is no surprise, then, that after leaving SAR many of our alumni manage to publish books and articles that move past the boundaries of academic writing to catch the attention of a national readership.
Mexican American people have long been made to question their belonging to the American social fabric and polity, argue Phillip Gonzales, Renato Rosaldo, and Mary Louise Pratt. Citizenship, both political and cultural, provides one lens on this question of belonging, and our latest Advanced Seminar volume discusses the relationship between Latinx experience and citizenship in the United States from a variety of specific perspectives.
Over the course of her Anne Ray internship, Emily Santhanam dove deep into the collections, approaching the objects through registration, collections management, education, and curation work. Each project taught her to navigate Native American arts stewardship in a new way. Yet what she most enjoyed was creating an online exhibition about the bolo ties cared for by the IARC.
The School for Advanced Research in Santa Fe, New Mexico, is pleased to welcome six new board members: John Arroyo, Brenda J. Child, Estevan Rael-Gálvez, Steve Robinson, Don Siegel, and David A. Young.
