Summer Institute in the Arts & Humanities Info Sessions on Feb 27 & Mar 3

Hello Undergraduates, There are still plenty of spots available in the upcoming Info Sessions for the Summer Institute in the Arts & Humanities. All students interested in applying to the Summer Institute are encouraged to attend. Bring your Summer Institute questions and learn more about the application process, what you can expect if you are selected, and what our expectations are for students. Summer Institute Information Sessions will be held on the following dates: Thursday, February 27 – 4:30-5:30 pm Monday, March 3 – 12:30-1:30 pm All sessions will be held in Mary Gates Hall 171. Register here: The Summer Institute in the Arts & Humanities selects and supports twenty UW undergraduates (Seattle, Bothell, & Tacoma) to engage in intensive research projects under the guidance of four interdisciplinary instructors on the UW Seattle campus. Students selected to participate in the Summer Institute in the Arts & Humanities: * engage in intensive scholarly work under the guidance of four instructors * are named Mary Gates Scholars and receive a $4,000 scholarship to help defray costs of participation * earn 12 academic credits over terms A & B of Summer Quarter (are eligible to receive financial aid if applicable) * present their final projects in the Summer Institute Symposium This year’s Institute invites students to explore rich histories of Native struggles, contemporary (trans)national Indigenous social movements, and repertoires of decolonizing artistic, cultural, and intellectual production. Students will also explore the long-standing double-bind that Indigenous peoples face: their practices are seen as out-of-place (or dangerous) by the rules of settler-societies and “inauthentic” when they employ the logics and languages of dominant markets and states. We welcome student projects that explore topics that include (but are not limited to) Indigenous social movements, encounters between European and Native epistemologies (in debates over archaeology, genetics, nature, and religion), contrasting colonial and Native temporalities, and Native artistic production (including literature and the visual, plastic, and performing arts). _____________________________________________ Undergraduate Research Program Center for Experiential Learning and Diversity | Undergraduate Academic Affairs University of Washington Box 352803 | 171 Mary Gates Hall PH: 206.543.4282 | FAX: 206.616.4389 default iconATT00002.c
