Congratulations to Paulina Przystupa, who has been awarded a UNM GPSA High Priority Research Grant for her doctoral research, Structuring Childhood and Building Americans: Enculturation, Assimilation, and Resistance at American's Children's Institutions.  Her innovative research will examine how adults created buildings and landscapes to enculturate children in orphanages and Indian schools comparing the two through time in the 19th and early 20th centuries as views of childhood changed dramatically.  Paulina will work with the State Historian's office for the part of her research that focuses on children's homes in New Mexico.
