This year, faculty in the Division of Arts and Humanities of the College of Arts and Sciences were invited to submit proposals to help develop focus areas of significance to education in the Humanities and the Arts in the 21st century. Proposals for up to $150,000 in one-time cash funds were solicited for pilot projects that promised to lay the groundwork for potential permanent investment by the college and/or the Humanities and Arts Discovery Theme. Out of eleven proposals that were awarded, three were awarded to faculty members in the the Department of Women's, Gender and Sexuality Studies!

Congratulations to Jill Bystydzienski on her project, "Proposal for Programming Leading to a Science and Technology Studies (STS) Center", Jennifer Suchland on her project, "Human Rights in Transit", and to Mary Thomas on her project with Thomas Davis, "Environmental Humanities"!
